No sigos of leaving yet. Patients are no longer permitted to leave. Quite a few think we are being kept here for a purpose, and will not leave until Corregidor surrenders. I don’t think so. Very little artillery activity. Rice and oats for breakfast, and rice and gravy for supper. How I am beginning to dislike rice, but it is much too soon for that.
