6 Jan. ’42

No events today. Body of Koenig left at 1545 through Red Cross to Funeria Nationale [Funeraria Nacional] with Japanese approval. After the long delay with awaiting the arrival of the Japanese it became necessary to make arrangements for the burial of Koenig’s body and the Mother Superior gave us permission to bury in the compound ground. The arrival of the Japanese at the last moment made it unnecessary. Some aerial activity around Nichols Field. No communications: at all. Wish I could get a message home. Looting and fires apparently ended. Warning in papers of reprisals 10 to 1. Any accident to a Japanese will result in 10 of the enemy being shot.
