Diary of Antonio de las Alas

September 6, 1945, Thursday

I wrote a letter to my wife, congratulating her on the occasion of her birthday on September 9. How painful! This is the first time I will not be with her on her birthday.

I also told her to have Paddy and Monching arrange my bail so that when I arrive in Manila, I shall not stay long in jail.

We live on hope. All kinds of rumors are circulating about our departure. There is no definite news as yet. What must be happening?
