Gee, there was the prettiest wedding here this aft. Two Chinese people got married. The bride wore a pretty pink silk Chinese dress with the prettiest embroidery around the sleeveless sleeves & the bottom. She had a long veil that was the most beautiful thing – held in place by a crown (tiara) of stiff silver threads with little white flowers. And she carried a bouquet of flowers gathered here. The wedding took place on the hillside and everything was so nice.

Madame Kollerman’s moved out of camp – and everyone’s so glad!

I still say I’m going to spend Christmas and New Year’s in Manila.

I’ve got to close now because it’s so dark I can’t even see what I’m writing.
