October 19, 1944

Up early full of expectancy and at 7:23 a.m. over the boys came before the Japanese could give the Raid signal. Beautiful bombing—several waves. They seem to be working on air fields, Port, Pasig, and possibly Cavite. Rumor of 100 transports off Tayabas. Two raids in p.m. but Alert and All Clear sounded about 5:30. The Japanese are taking out most of the stores which are in the front grounds. Stories of protests by neutrals and orders by Tokyo. Weary from washing. A very fine day in spite of yesterday’s typhoon threat.
