Day 31, 22 Oct. 1945 Manila Bay

Arrived Manila Bay at 0800… to anchorage; we went in to Pier 15 at 1800 and began to debark at 2000 and were done at 2145.

Got the mail… 4 letters from Louise, and one from the war dept. saying I was made Captain on 25 September… 17 months after becoming 1st Lt… hope that is not indicative of poor work… but may be. I’m glad it came through. Had Sullivan pin my new Bars.

They say that we will load and leave tomorrow.
