The weather is fine but warm. A good many of our men are getting passes to go to Manila. We received some rations up until twenty(?) and some fresh meat which I cut up but I made up my mind to quit unless I get extra pay. I am now all together with the company which hasn’t started to do anything outside of guard duty.
