All packed and ready for moving at 10:00 A.M. All baggage taken to #1 for loading. Finally loaded and away at 1:30 P.M. Everybody in trucks. Sure crowded. I felt sort of bad at leaving for me don’t know what we are getting into. Ride long, tiresome, dusty, and hot. Got my fill of mangoes at San Fernando. All took 13 biscuits for eating on the way. Very happy when we headed for Manila at San Fernando, but our spirits sure fell when we were taken to old Bilibid Prison. All crowded in one big room and slept on cement floor. Had rice at 12:30 P.M. John and I brought canned food with us.
