Diary of Basilio J. Valdes

July 22, 1942 — Wednesday

Temperature in Washington cooler. Busy at office morning & afternoon. I invited Colonel Melchor, Mr. Davis & Major Eraña for luncheon. At 3:30 p.m. Lieutenant Madrigal phoned for me to get ready to leave with the President at 6 p.m. for Leesburg. Arrived at Leesburg 7:20 p.m. Temperature delightful. Could not sleep worried about my family in Manila. Received birthday presents from President & Mrs. Quezon & their daughters.
