Today the silence has been broken by the sound of cannon fire coming from the direction of Barotac Nuevo.

A relative of Coné (Lt. Hortillosa) came to see us. He brought the news that he had met with someone who had seen Coné before Christmas at the La Paz market place and he was looking well. We were happy to hear this news as the Philippine Army propaganda mentioned, “The prisoners in Iloilo were sent to Manila.” Although I did not believe it, we have heard this many times.
