Dec. 30, 1941

I took convoy to Manila. Road very dusty and filled with vehicles and troops withdrawing to Bataan. Arrived in Manila at noon. Loaded trucks at 92 Panaderos to return in A.M. Civilian employees seemed okay and office force continuing duties efficiently. Lieutenant Roderick in charge. Spend night at Army & Navy Club after walking around town with Sgt. Allen which had taken on a veil of gloom and disaster.
