Ex-Federal Judge Milton Purdy from Shanghai arrives. Funeral service in the afternoon in the Episcopal Cathedral for the late King George V. A very representative turnout. Murphy and Quezon both there –tho I think Quezon was rather unwilling to appear before his own people to take second place. Service was all about God and very little about the late King! Too many hymns and too much choir. Speech by Consul Blunt well phrased, and not so sloppy as if given by an American. Mrs. Quezon’s absence with Mrs. Phil Buencamino en route for Java is odd. What does it mean? Is it her dislike of Malacañan and of public office? Or has it political significance?
