Diary of Louise Fillmore Blancaflor

December 23, 1944

The relatives of the owner of the house next door are now removing all furniture from the empty house. They have brought the dishes and books over to our place for safekeeping.

The USAFFE notified the owner that his house was going to be burned tonight. Thank God the wind will be blowing away from us, so we don’t think it is necessary for us to leave our house.
