It has rained all night heavily but the morning was clear and we started to load our chests on cascos. At 4 p.m., we had them all on the ship. Also, C, H, I and E Companies went aboard. The rest were left at Cavite to wait until the arrival of the Montanan Regiment. The Senator is not a large boat, but much more convenient than the Zealandia. Our sleeping quarters are better and have more room below but less deck room.
