Diary of Francis Burton Harrison

April 1, 1936

Message from Quezon asking Babbitt, Andy Anderson and me to join him on Arayat. I accepted, Babbitt and Anderson declined–rather a job to get substitutes–Peters and Wolff were proposed.

News in the morning papers that Lanao Moros had fortified a cotta–it was stormed by the Constabulary and 5 Moros are reported killed (more likely 50!).

What an intolerable bore it is being in an office where three out of four visitors come to ask something of me!

A. D. Williams says Quezon has approved plans for the appraisal of a yacht in Los Angeles–1000 tons–sister ship of Yolanda (Mrs Moses Taylor’s).
