May 30, 1944

I haven’t been giving you a daily account of all our activities for they are much the same as usual, with the exception of the soaring prices of commodities. Rice is now 700 Pesos a sack, pork 15 Pesos a kilo (1 kilo = 2 2/5 lbs.), beef the same price.

The price of medicine is beyond the reach of the poor people. One tablet of sulphathiazol is 100 Pesos.
