Dec. 21, 1941

Well, it’s two weeks already –and no bombs yet– We don’t know whether the Japs are holding off so as to “soften” us up by delay or whether they feel that we can wait until they want Manila Bay — or whether the Democratic allies have Japan pretty well contained. It does look to me as though the Japs are trying to close the encirclement of the Philippines by attacking HongKong,Borneo and Singapore — If they get Singapore we will be in a spot.The HongKong garrison is holding out yet — Our hearts go out to them in their desperate struggle without aerial support — We pray the Chinese will be able to relieve the pressure but we must admit it looks bleak.
