Last Wednesday, Leo took sick with the dysentery. We did not think it was serious at the time, but it got worse so that we called a doctor on Friday. He was delirious from weakness all night, but a little better in the morning. However, a Red Cross nurse happened to come to visit us this morning, and upon seeing Leo sick, insisted on taking him to a hospital. So we called a taxi and off they went. The rest of us all went to the camp to re-register. Seems the Japanese are making a check-up on all the ones released from camp. On my return I looked for Leo at the emergency hospital, but learned that he had been taken to San Lazaro. It was too late to go there.
