December 29, 1941 

Bombed Corregidor hard today. Start of 4th week of the war. Two months today since I’ve had any mail. Lots of good rumors in the air but nothing definite. The Xmas season has been different than I planned.

The Shangri-La campers watched the first Japanese bombing of Corregidor this afternoon from a nearby cleared hillock. They felt frustrated as they observed the Japanese bombers–Army and Navy alike–flying unopposed over the island and unloading their bombs on Corregidor’s Fort Mills.
