Diary of Antonio de las Alas

May 1, 1945

Labor Day. We left San Jose at noon. While on deck this morning, some expressed their hope that the justice or injustice would be righted. I said that perhaps we stopped in San Jose to receive further instructions from Manila, and we might turn back. Otherwise, we might as we get used to our situation. America said nothing could be done so we might as well not worry about it.

The food is better; each meal we’re given a can of biscuits, candies and concentrated drinks which we reserve to eat between our two meals.
