April 19, 1942

Left Sen Fernando at 9 o’clock this morning, by train. On our way to Conception, Tarlac, where Camp O’Donnell was at.

At all the stations, the Filipinos threw candy, rice, bananas, etc., into the box cars. I was lucky, and got some.

We arrived at Tarlac at 1 o’clock and marched about 21/2 K. to O’Donnell.

Upon arriving there, we were searched, and one blanket I carried all the way from Bataan, was taken from me. I’d been tempted to throw it away on that march; wish I had now, because I never got it back.
