Diary of Marcial Lichauco

Shanghai, December 10, 1931

Cold and invigorating in Shanghai today. We left the boat around 2:30 and  were in the lobby of the Cathay around 3:00 p.m. trying to locate Mrs.  Price and Major (?) G. Barett (?) who might accompany us, failing which we divided into two parties for shopping and sightseeing.  Also a tea at the London Tavern by Filipinos which, as usual, was tiring.

Roxas, S[abido], T[irona] and I dined at the Sevilla compound by Lusitano[1] Then a drive around town and a visit to the “Little Club” when we joined Osmeña, Montinola and representatives of the $ Line who were entertaining them.  Then to the “Canidrome” for more dancing and finally to the jetty to catch the 2 a.m. tender back to the steamer.
