Diary of Apolinario Mabini

6th of November 1901

Captain McKelvy read to me a letter from the Governor, dated yesterday. It says:

“SIR: I have to request that you will present to Mr. Apolinario Mabini, Filipino prisoner of war, my compliments, and convey to him and the other gentlemen, whom he represents and their servants, my high sense of the courtesy contained in the letter of November 4th, expressing a welcome to me and my family upon our return to Guam.

“Mrs. Schroeder begs to be associated with me in this expression of appreciation.

“Very respectfully,

“SEATON SCHRODER,

“Commander U.S. Navy, Governor.

The Commanding Officer,

Guam Prisons.”
