This morning Porky wanted us (Americans) to build breastworks at the gates. Committee protested, so they had to use Filipinos. Built works of wood and dirt. Commandant ordered this afternoon that at given signal internees were to go to buildings, shut doors and windows and lie prone. There has been guerrilla activity nearby, town of Calawan raided and Mayor “bumped off” within the week; apparently they expect trouble. Not much activity other than routine here. The building program has a long way to go yet. I love you.
