Diary of Basilio J. Valdes

March 9, 1942 — Monday

At 2:20 a.m. I was awakened by Captain Salazar who wanted the secret code to decode a message from General MacArthur.

Served at Mass and received Holy Communion. After the mass the President called me and showed me his sputum which had a little blood. He immediately sent for Dr. Trepp. I gave him an injection of Calcium and Redoxon. When Dr. Trepp arrived he advised repose for at least two days.
