There is to be no more cocoa or sugar. There is some but the Japanese won’t sell it to us. Looting has emptied many places in town. Lysol almost gone, no more. We hear the Red Cross is almost defunct in Manila, supplies looted. Will we all be let out to remove the Japanese responsibility of starving us, when our funds which feed us are gone? Everyone thinks and talks about it.

Nakamura and his family are now being fed by our camp as they had been receiving nothing.

British Consular girls received letters about their transfer, maybe to England. People began to come and look at their space and shelves “as though we were already already dead!”
