Diary of Alfred Burton Welch

Saturday 12-3-98

Busy in office. Wrote home and sent the returned letters which were stolen. Can make myself understood in Espanol very well. Very easy & my Latin a great help, but German is a bother, as I often use ger. words when I want Spanish. Took shower bath in eve & sent washing “una pesos un mes” –“50¢ Amer. per mo,” for all white suits –everything. Were issued mosquito nets.
