Diary of Louise Fillmore Blancaflor

July 16, 1944

Mr. Pueyo and several other Spaniards and Filipinos were caught with short wave radios (was prohibited by the Japanese). They were confined to prison for several months, and last week were sent to Manila. So was Bessie Jalbuena’s sister, who had arrived from the U.S. only three months before the war broke out. Up until now, she was allowed by the Japanese to live with Bessie at home. The Japanese have been very lenient and did not place her in the concentration camp until now. Two English nuns from the Assumption College were also allowed to stay in the college.
