Monday, January 5, 1942

On Saturday there was a call (indirectly from Lt. Arnold) that I had a letter salvaged from the S.S. Panay in Bacolod. Hoping that it might be from Jim, I sent for it. There was no letter. The army lieutenant who called me to get it is no longer here—having been transferred—so the mystery remains unsolved. A letter from Jim, even an old one, would be like a message from heaven.
