American fury in the Philippines. XV / Plunder

E. D. Furnam, of the Washington Regiment, writes of the battles of
February 4th and 5th:

We burned hundreds of houses and looted hundreds more. Some of the
boys made good hauls of jewelry and clothing. Nearly every man has at
least two suits of clothing, and our quarters are furnished in style;
fine beds with silken drapery, mirrors, chairs, rockers, cushions,
pianos, hanging-lamps, rugs, pictures, etc. We have horses and
carriages, and bull-carts galore, and enough furniture and other
plunder to load a steamer.
