Jan. 1st — 1899, Manila, Cuartel de Tabacolaris [Tabacalera]. Welchen

A native orchestra is in the Plaza. 50 men of Co. D marched out to B.H. 11 in charge of Sergt Coombs, 2nd Lieu. Lamping, commanding. We have a swell dinner today — and I feel proud of it for I am acting quartermaster Serg’t. today. The ‘4’ was to sing on the Luneta tonight –but an order came which allows no one outside the line.
