Take Banker with four men, for a trip up the river to Pasig + the Laguna entrance. Our Comprador, Juan Barberry, is my indian guide and interpreter. Sick all day, + don’t much care what I saw. Though I did enjoy the Laguna + cool evening paddle homeward. A company of guitar players + their dancing girls, enlivened the hotel after my return.
