September 10, 1898 (Saturday)

Just about noon today we [had] orders to be ready by 10:00 to start. … So we packed our knapsacks and marched down to the water and get on board of a little steam launch and steamed out to the steamship, St. Paul, a transport which took us over in front of Manila, where we remained for the night. Tea was served by the ship crew to the boys, which was very gratefully recieved. It rained most all night.
