BAGUIO. Today NARA Group invited about 70 people, BAGUIO FILIPINOS and a small number of JAPANESE sympathisers to the Group Commander’s official residence (General House) at JOHN HAY Camp. Officers were also invited, and it was the first tea party to be held since they have been stationed at JOHN HAY Camp. I was given the work of reading aloud (interpreting) the greetings of His Excellency. Being new here, it was a great honor. The senior adjutant praised me, saying that the interpreting was very good.
