February 25, 1950

Yesterday and today I wrote 12 letters, — to US, England, Australia, Spain, Portugal, India, Hongkong, Taiwan, Burma and Shanghai. Had first swim in the hotel pool, and enjoyed it. Dinner at the Huie’s. He is in the Luzon Stevedoring Co.; she is daughter of Rev. Mr. Gleystern (Peking). They have an 11 month baby boy, who came to my arms and smiled at me. Other guests were Chick and Mrs. Parsons and Col. And Mrs. Duke (?) of JUSMAG (“Yoosmaag”). Adm. Giles Stedman and another lady were in for a drink. A very delightful evening, and an excellent dinner.
