The steamer went alongside the wharf at 6 a.m. and we disembarked. We had spent 43 days on the ‘Sherman’ and 3? days on the ‘Peking’, — 1 total of 80 days at sea. We breakfasted at the Ferry Depot at 8.30 a.m. and at 11 a.m. marched out to the Presidio Camp Where we
arrived at 2 pm.
We left for Bacolod at midnight and arrived at 9.30 a.m. We were nearly wrecked when we were caught in a squall and had the sails carried away. We were driven onto coral reefs and had to wade ashore with water up to our necks, a distance of about 1,000 yards.
