Diary of Albert E. Holland

December 3, 1944

[New unnumbered page (4)]

December 3rd – No action – No news. The silence is depressing, but we still hope for release by Xmas The Japanese must be making very determined efforts to retake Leyte – Also we have heard of some sort of bombing truce applicable to the Manila area for the first week in December –

“Hamlet” plus Landauer’s analysis is giving me great pleasure – analysis is not quite the word – appreciation perhaps would be better –

I walked about a little bit today – But I am so weak that I can only keep on my feet for 5-10 minutes –

Good humor is more necessary than ever –
