Sun. Apr. 12/42

We had a little excitement today. Cecil and I were at Cinco de Junio for Meeting. The first testimony was being given when four explosions were heard and felt. I say, “Felt” because with each blast the house shook and the wall at my back seems to bulge indefinitely. Immediately there was confusion. One in the meeting stood up and cried, “Flying Fortress!”’! Children in the neighbor’s house began to cry, and in a few seconds there were shouts, murmurs, excited talking and laughing as people poured into the streets, or the more fearful ran for air raid shelters and dug-outs. With difficulty we continued our Meeting. Learned afterward that American planes had come over all right.
