June 19, 1942

About 500 patients in from Bataan. Plenty of dysentery cases sent over to me. Rice and watery mongo bean soup for patients. Very little soup. Mostly plain polished rice. Not good enough for life. Rotten vegetables (not eatable) arrived today. Had to be thrown away. Market sweepings. Looks as if Japs want us to die of starvation –not suddenly, but little by little. They then work the men until they get so weak disease gets them. Terrible, uncivilized beings.
