I woke up in the morning at 5, had breakfast and soon noticed the Bongao Islands in the distance. The Bongao Islands are the most southern islands of the Philippines, lying between the fourth and fifth degree south of the equator and 119 to 120 degrees east of Greenwich. At 7 o’clock we set anchor by a jetty, unloaded our things and placed our dwelling in order, the ship was taken over by the Constabulary, which took it to Manila. A small American battleship was anchored in the vicinity, which soon sailed on.
