11 Jan. ’42

Lt. Iwasi Shimizu called for one hour and arranged for Sgt. Wells lip treatment with radium the Philippine General Hospital. Sgt. Wells of the Marine Corps has a probable epithelioma of the lip and no treatment is available here but arrangements had been previously made for the Philippine General Hospital to treat him. The Japanese Lieutenant said he would let me know tomorrow, and requested that I give him a message for America. The following message was written out, “Capt. Davis was interviewed in Manila this afternoon at the Naval Medical Center and stated that all patients were improving and that he and his staff were well, receiving good care and courteous treatment.”
