On the 19th of August, I went to Corregidor fortress and stayed there overnight. The next day I returned to Manila and remained there until the 26th of August. On this day, with a marvellous sunset, I bid farewell to Manila and the Philippines. I sailed to Hong Kong on the ship Juen Sang. I had bought a boat ticket from Manila to Genova, Italy from a German shipper for 120 dollars.
