April 6, 1900

In response to a request from Colonel Scott opened up a reading and correspondence room for the men of the Forty-fourth Infantry at Jaro. They are ravenous for reading matter. Transported by a bull-cart from Iloilo one case magazines, writing material, powdered ink, ink wells, and a few late San Francisco papers (six weeks old, of course).
Private Ira J. Steidley, of Company B, is in charge. Splendid quarters given.
