Was very indignant at the ingratitude of Americans; no wonder Filipinos don’t like them here, when they des­pise us and everything Filipino, and yet they make their livelihood in the P.I. They say everything here is bad, etc., etc.; but why remain? If Filipinos are lazy, it is not their fault. The climate demands that they be less energetic.

They are all alike – wake up, Olivia; they do not deserve the consideration you show them. They have tried my patience so much by their continuous fault-finding and criti­cism that I feel like running into the woods and not see any American for the rest of my life. I have tried to meet them more than halfway, do all I can for them to promote good understanding between them and my people, but they are not worthy of the trouble.
