Diary of Louise Fillmore Blancaflor

December 7, 1944

Last night was quiet and we all slept well. Our “fortification” is finished and we feel safer.

I sent John to Iloilo to buy Lipton’s Tea and he came home without it. He thought the price was too much – 1⁄4 lb cost 1,100 Pesos! An American made bicycle is valued at 50,000 Pesos!
