Diary of Tomas Confesor

28th day, Jan. 24, 1945

I haven’t left the house today in order to rest. But I haven’t gotten the relaxation I wanted. Maj. Hughes came in to have an interview with me, prying into my public career. I talked to him for over two hours, giving him the low down, and my views on certain public questions.

Late this afternoon I got the message that we shall be leaving tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. by plane for the U.S. I have packed up all that I have to bring with me in a small handbag, weighing not more than 10 lbs.
