Came down to Manila with Daddy and Mother this morning. Jen came down with Walsers. Mme. Kollerman and the two Navarro brats came down with us. Mother and I visited at the school while all the others attended to their business. I was so cold and hungry. I helped the teachers make uniforms for the Sternberg nurses. At 11:00, Daddy came back and we slipped away from Mme Kollerman and came home. A whole swarm of boys (American soldiers) who were bombed out of Nichols are living there. They’re nice.
First, I got something to eat – then a nice warm bath. Then I helped Mama fix dinner for the guys and burnt the gravy. Just as we were all sitting down to eat, that dammed air-raid signal blew. So we went into the kitchen and Daddy, Mother, one of the guys, and I sat in the pantry. I sat on a shoe-box which collapsed. After the raid, the guys left and we went back to camp.
