We then boarded six lighters which which towed us over to Cavite. We then went into barracks located by the Iowans. While crossing the bay we saw the T.S. Sheridan from New York with troops aboard her. We also passed the Montauk, the Monterey, the Oregon and the Olympia. I slept all night in the Navy yard which is patrolled by Dewey’s Marines. Our quarters are the best we ever had. The Iowans are still occupying some of them until the next morning.
