Diary of Louise Fillmore Blancaflor

September 29, 1942

Yesterday morning at 10:00 a.m. we were badly frightened again as the planes flew over us, but they did not bomb. We believe they are reinforcements which came from Manila. We all were afraid that they would return and start bombing, but the weather became stormy and very windy. No doubt a typhoon is brewing.

Yesterday afternoon our cook, John, and some of the farm workers buried all my good dishes. I am putting our trunks and clothes into nearby nipa houses in case the Japanese get through the USAFFE lines and burn our house down.
