This is a beautiful day. A good many of the boys attended Catholic services in the morning. In the evening Chaplain Hunter held services at the Opera House which was well attended. We all enjoyed it and the sacred concert given by the Colorado Band. Up until now we have heard nothing of the disposition of the Philippine Islands. [Frank] Christopher, [Max] Hanan, [James] Baird, [William] Kennedy, [George] Miller, [David] Twist, [Homer] Daugherty, [John] Curry, [Ray] Sparks, and [Gilbert] Cuite are on the sick book.
