Diary of Antonio de las Alas

July 19, 1945 Thursday

The kind of food they give us varies. Yesterday, we had for the first time fresh fish for dinner. We certainly enjoyed it very much. Today we only had canned salmon. We hope we will have better food. Whatever the food is I always have an appetite. When I came here I only weighed 101 pounds; four weeks later, 108 lbs.; two months ago, 114; today, 118. I will soon regain my normal weight of about 125 pounds.

We are becoming pessimistic in view of the fact that Congress adjourned with considering the proposed resolution providing for action on our cause.
