Diary of Louise Fillmore Blancaflor

September 30, 1944

Two days ago, Agustin came from Barotac with two bull carts just in case we wished to evacuate. It is dangerous to go out of the city, and another thing, I do not have a pass to go out. The Japanese are permitting people to leave the city, but they will not be responsible for anything that happens to them. Fighting is expected at any time, and being an American it is not safe for me to be running around. So we decided to take our chances in the city.

There were no raids today.
