Manila, Luzon Island – Entry made in parlor of No. 2 Calle Santa Elena, Tondo

Rain all last night & today; at times very hard. Sky looks stormy as night closes in. Remained at home. Ventured not outsider. Closely applied myself to my Diary & have about secured such information as I desired. Although not as busy as I should have liked the year has been busy one.

Read a chapter in Deuteronomy, prayed & cooked breakfast; also cleaned my cooking utensils. Cooked supper.

My neighbors across the street, Utah brass bandsmen, have their chests packed & roped ready to depot for home.

This afternoon while I was presiding over the pots in the Kitchen Private (Bro.) Bruce Mason, Co. F. 1st Montana Vol. came around in a quilez. We had a lengthy conversation, spiritual & otherwise. Before he departed prayed together. Fixed him a cup of lemonade. Bro. Mason is one of Rev. Owens’ converts; praise the dear Lord.
