Roxas and I to Mass at 11:00. Then called on Tirona and all together to Guevara’s for dinner. There were about 25 there including Celia Costa (UST) who is studying in Washingon on a scholarship. After luncheon we took Gloria to her father again and made arrangements to leave him there and have Gloria call every morning. To a movie, then dinner at Osias’  (where Glo is to stay) and then to bed.
 Pedro Guevara (Feb 23,1879-Jan 19, 1938) was Resident Commissioner 1 of the Philippines to Washington DC from 1927 – 1936.

Arrived at 8:30, 15’ early, and the usual delegation was at the Union Station. Montinola was taken at once to the Emergency Hospital. We have taken quarters are the Willard Hotel excepting Tirona and family who are at the Roosevelt. Then Tirona called on Sen. Hawes this afternoon.
Arrived at Chicago 12:00 or nearly 3 hours late. A large group of Pinoys met us headed by Dr. Zulueta? Zialcita? and Dr. Montenegro(?) Montemayor (?). We ate ice cream and cookies in the Filipino Recreation Center and toasted Speaker Roxas who is 40 years old today. Then to catch the 1:45 …?... Capitol Hotel to which our special car was booked. We lunched at 2:30 p.m. on the adobo prepared by Mrs. Zulueta (Zialcita?) and that evening we were guests of Roxas for dinner.
Spent both days on the S.F. Ltd. bound for Chicago. We spent our time reading Hawes manuscript on the P.I. – Also a little bridge now and then. Montinola is in bed — in one of the compartments and we take turns keeping him company.
Fernandez, Rodrigo and I asked Gloria to be our guest tonight in a special New Year’s Eve dinner in the Dining Car. It cost $10.00. To bed at 9:30.
Arrived at breakwater at 6:00 but immigration officials were late and we did not dock until after 9:00. Dolly met us and spent the day on board. Roxas and Co, with exception of Montinola left for lunch and tea with Ehrman, Jackson & Co while F[ernandez] and I remained to expedite baggage through.
Left for So. Pac. Ferry at 4:00 and joined party there at 5:40 to cross over the ferry into Oakland. Left on the S.F. at 6:55. Dolly is returning to L.A. tomorrow.
Frantic packing all day and preparing grades for U.S.T. It was very cold today but seas not rough. Captain’s dinner a failure. Fernandez and I were up at 1:00 a.m. and I was unable to sleep until 3:00 a.m.
