Left Buena Vista on the 12th & arrived at San Augustine on the 17th. Left San Augustine on the 20th. Battle of the 20Aug. & defeat of the Mexican forces. The Co. pursued the fugitives, up to the gates of the City of Mexico & retired to & quartered in Tacabayo, near the City of Mexico, since the 20th Aug. 47. The following named men of Co F, 1st Regt Drags under command of 2nd Lieut Lorimer Graham, 10th Infy  [transfer Feb 2, 1848 to 1st Drags] attached to & doing duty with Co. F, engaged with & repulsed a large body of the enemy, on the road leading from Chalco to San Rafael on the 13th Aug. viz: Corp.  J. Clark, Privts.  Brophy, Cain, Gamon, Foreman [kia], Flint, Henry, Hoffman, Kaler, McAlister, Moore, Prather[also one of Richey escort], J. Smith, & Whitley. Co F on the 18th left San Augustine as escort to a reconnoitering party under Capt. [Robert E.] Lee, Topo. Eng. And on the road was  attacked by a party of Guerrillas, who were repulsed & driven in from the pedrigal leading from San Augustine to the Contraros & returned the same day.
