This is another fine morning. All the boys are attending services this morning. A good many go to the Catholic church. In the afternoon we have fresh meat. Every day and all are apparently satisfied with the grub. In the evening, at 9 p.m., our guards were called to a place where some of the Macabebes had stabbed a native woman to death. Thirteen cuts were shown on her body but there is no clue to the offender. Many arrests are made these days. Hardly a day passes without a dozen of so arrests. Our patrols are kept busy all the time. [Frank] Sullivan, [David] Twist, [Samuel] Hagan and [Frank] Hustead are on the sick list and about five or six are kept on light duty.
