Diary of Francis Burton Harrison

December 9, 1935

Quiet day—talk with Garfinkel, a.d.c. at office: he says Quezon is ill again from eating too much; that the President does not like to come to his office at Malacañan and prefers to do his work in pajamas at his home in Pasay. Nor does Mrs. Quezon wish to move into the Palace—she also prefers Pasay.

Bridge and dinner with Mr. & Mrs. Fox, Peters, and Espinos (Spanish Consul General). Last named told me that Colonel Lim was to leave Scouts and become a general in the new Philippine Army. Good selection.
