May 22, 1942

Another good night’s sleep last night. A truck detail for building supplies this A.M. and again this P.M. Caribou [carabao], rice and pancakes for breakfast, and coffee; split pea soup, tea and biscuits for lunch; rice and gravy and dried fish and tea for supper. John and I took a walk after supper and then a shower. Sure feel swell. Rumor persists that Germany has surrendered. A Filipino we met today says he heard it over the radio. No 1.H says they heard Hitler had fled; so it goes, but the rumor is sure persistent.
