Boy, did I sleep last night! Felt find this A.M. Made a trip out for clothes, food, and building supplies. Very successful. Also got a grinder for rice and our black pepper. Another trip out this aft. but found little. Located much tar paper and several kegs of nails which we will get tomorrow. Am quite tired tonight but feel fine. Had rice and gravy and pancakes for breakfast, soup and biscuits for lunch, and rice and gravy and spaghetti for supper. Coffee at breakfast and tea at other meals. Things sure are looking up.Rumor of four Red Cross ships leaving U.S.A. on 5-25-42.
