Sent letter to Captain Leonard Cairns asking about Jim. Asked him to telephone me as I could not call him. Letter to him by messenger. Mail now takes a week for 50 kilometers, and then uncertain.
Tried to send cable to Jim’s mother but Cebu radio dead. We shall go to the hills Tuesday. Recommended by Col. McClellan, new officer in charge of Negros. We expect invasion soon of all Visayan Islands. KGEI announcer mispronounces this, calling it Visaian, which is the central group of the Philippine Islands.
