October 16, 1942

Yesterday my wife received a coded note at our Tennessee St. residence from Maj. Enriquez which, in effect, stated that he was able to contact his man at BC HQ and for me to prepare for the “good news.”  He also stated that when I get the note he will be back to his unit but that I will hear from him later.  And so today, I requested San Lazaro Hospital to release me from the sick list as I “have recovered completely from my malaria”.

At 1000H today, I left the hospital, went home and reported to BC HQ at 1500H. The Adm. O. directed me to the Misc. Casual GP with instructions to report every morning. This GP is composed of BC officers waiting to proceed to their new stations. I wonder if I still have to proceed to my original Lanao assignment otherwise I may be back at the hospital if there ever is a ship for me.
