The morning is nice and clear. I am still off duty. I went to Manila and bought a little thing I intend to take home. Had a splendid time and a good dinner at the Spanish Hotel. Returned on 4:30 boat. There were services held at quarters in the morning and evening. All the saloons are kept open on Sundays at Cavite while in Manila most all the stores and saloons are kept closed. As Taps is sounded, it is raining very heavily.
