This is a pretty morning and, for the first time, our clothing is dry. Once more we were all able to perform the regular routine of duty. All were out on drill on time. We expected the Monterey to come in today. In the afternoon we witnessed a foot race between Powers and a native. Powers won easily by ten yards in a 100 yard run. I am improving gradually. [Ray] Rush, [Jacob] Landis, [Charles] Walker, [Robert] Fox and Collins remain on the sick list. The rest [of the men] are well.
