May 18, 1944 (Thursday)

Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord.

Still sick in quarters but feeling much better. The weather has suddenly changed. While the other day we were already starting to feel the heat of early summer, today it has been very cold, like any ordinary winter day. Had to put on my overcoat at home to keep myself warm.

Eddie Vargas came to visit me this p.m. at 1:00. He stayed a couple of hours chatting.
