June 30, 1944

Today Dorothy and I went to Iloilo (what’s left of it). I bought two pairs of nylon stockings at 35 Pesos a pair. Dorothy bought a small vegetable dish at 38 Pesos, six dinner plates at 20 Pesos each. All of her dishes had been looted early in the war and those she had left were broken or chipped. We met with a funny incident in one of the Chinese stores. I asked the Chinese proprietor if he had any stockings (in English), and he answered me in Spanish and Japanese.
