Manila is declared an open city. Jane, Bill and Carl go to work. I take over the housekeeping. Spent the day with the Ivorys end Rhudies. Terrific bombing but most of the damage done in the Walled City. When Carl came home this afternoon he brought with him all of his clothes, and we will stay on with the Wolff’s till further developments. The Olsen’s have the upstairs and Wolff’s the downstairs for sleeping quarters; the rest of the tine the house belongs to everybody!!
