July 2, 1900

A few of us had a little feed and Celebration in honor of Jerrys birthday at Beling’s house, (Beling is one of Jerry Maher’s lady friends) to which we invited several of the belles of Virac.  We had Chicken, curried rice, comotes, crabs, fried bannanes, rice cakes, Chino bread, fish, Chino “mince pies”, candy, cheese, coffee anisado, Malaga, & Scotch.  A swell feed for this part of the world to which Jerry Maher & Beling, Jones and Teresa, McElwee and Concha—- OConnor and Petronia, and Myself with Margerita Titi sat down and we certainly enjoyed ourselves as only a soldier can with a good feed in front of him, a pretty girl (even if she is rather dark) beside him and a bunch of smokes and couple of bottles on the side.
