12 Apr. ’42

Surprise bombing of Nichols Field at 10:00 this morning. Six bombs dropped in rapid succession, but the planes too high to see. Hangars set afire. High patrolling this PM over Nielson Field, but no action; but American planes must be near and disturbing to Japanese. Mass Japanese bombing on Corregidor this AM. Finished reading the “Mandrake Boot” by Marie Ostenso. Excellent story of the Midwest, Started “Raleigh’s Eden”.
