Diary of Francis Burton Harrison

January 29, 1936

Call from Blunt to return mine –complimented him on his address yesterday especially his rejection of unnecessary adjectives. He enquired what use we were making of Irish Land Laws. Call from Pedro Tan, who said Quezon’s supporters were grumbling at his favouring his opponents instead of his own party –i.e., Roxas for Secretary of Finance. He agreed, however, that Roxas was by all odds the best man for the post –he added “perhaps Quezon is training him to fight against Osmeña in the next election”!!
