It is seven months today that Gen. Christie and the USAFFE forces (including Coné) surrendered to the Japanese and I am wondering how they are getting along. There has been no fighting for several days, although planes have been flying around – just scouting, I presume.

Some men came from our farm yesterday bringing with them oranges, chicos and pomelos (pink grapefruit). They had a letter from Maring in which she said that they had an awful experience. The Japanese planes flew over their house looking for soldiers and they were as low as the banana trees!
