The Fil-American Irregular Troops or FAIT was a large guerrilla organization founded by the retired United States Army Colonel Hugh Straughn and had many affiliate units in Southern Luzon, including Batangas. The 6th Infantry Regiment, McKinley Division, which operated in the town of Lemery, was one of these. In this page is a transcription1 of a letter sent by Lt. Col. W. P. Moore of the United States Army to one Braulio Sedano accepting the 6th Infantry’s request for reconsideration of its failed application for official recognition.
