Notes of Raymond Leyerly

January 4, 1945

Mush made of rice and rice flour for breakfast and milk (coconut). Mush very thin and no salt. I have enough salt for about a week — but then what ? Soy bean soup for lunch and rice, gravy and greens for “dinner”. The gravy tasted good because we haven’t anything else. I sure would like to have some of Mama’s good old gravy or say, some curried shrimps.
