5 Jan. ’42

Quiet day, just waiting. Cars counted and more questions asked. The Hospital is neutralized by the Red Cross but doubt if it means anything to the Japanese. A lieut. speaking good English advised me to write a letter to the High Japanese Command relating who were here and recording the location of any stores that we may have. Between these various committee visits I am spending my time today with a jigsaw puzzle. I wonder if it has any significance in the entanglements ahead. All are calm. Koenig, Oliver, MMI died at 2215. Not able to remove body as the telephone number given to us by the Japanese does not answer and those across the street won’t help. Body sent to the laboratory after a little service by the Chaplain. No guards at the gate.
