July 27, 1900

Maher and I got a pass to go to Bato.  Went up the river by boat and were entertained at the Tribunal. we dined with the representative of Gil Bros, and when we started back for Cabugao we were in a slightly dilapidated condition, at least Lieut Dent thought so for he made us pack our duds and hike back to Virac with an escort.  Its no joke carrying a loaded blanket bag and a load of peaches at the same time.  I thought I would die before we finished the 5 mi from Cabugao to Virac where we were slammed into the pie house.
