April 8, 1942

Over 1500 admissions today. The firing is quite near now. It won’t be long now. Eddie Wernitznig & some of his detach came in today exhausted. Then unit has broken up & they have been dodging Japanese all nite. We have received orders to send nurses to Corregidor so with much snafu they gather what luggage they can & get into cars & trucks & start off. McDavitt takes a bad in his car. We can hear much traffic on the road & small arm fire can be heard coming closer & closer. finally got them off at 10:30 p.m. Hope they make the boat.
