Two civilians, mining engineers, named Ordum and Sauter came in today. Wish I could have asked them in with us at the Padres’. But we were guests there. Like them both. Ordum has a mine with a Mr. Cushing at Baay. Sauter had a job at Batang near Lubuagan. Wish they were both officers. I could use men like that. Ordum is a natural leader, Sauter a diamond in the rough. They moved in with Marshall and Maginelli, –they have the money for food, the pvts, will do the work.
