April 10, 1942

Slept very poorly last nite. Today a solid procession of Filipinos go thru the hospital carrying belongings babies etc. Many leave the hospital. Our census drops from about 7500 down to 2000 today. They are leaving with casts on wounds etc against our advice but there is no way we can stop them. Every group of Japanese soldiers that comes by takes some of our food. We are down to nothing but rice & it is red rice & stale. We are wondering what the future has in store for us. Are continuing with our duties of caring for the sick & the necessary administration. Is very disheartening. Kempf & Corregidor so the med Supply depot personnel has joined us. G. R. left about 40 unburied bodies on the hill which Col North & a detail buried.
