This is the group in the last two meetings

I spoke of my plans on the constitution –its scheduled approval November and a plebiscite Jan. 15, 1973. So the need for an information drive even among the troops. And an AFP newspaper.

Reviewed appropriations for the AFP.

Imelda is still in pain. They pulled out the last lower right molar at about 5:30 p.m, at the clinic of Dr. Primo Gonzales. Attending were Dra. Yap, Zagala, Dicini and the dentists Drs. Gonzales, Pungalong and Francisco.

She had to be given five injections of local anesthesia. But there is pain up to now. I hope the pain stops tomorrow.
We talked to Bonbong in London and Gov. Romualdez in New York

I am busy on the outline of the second book. I attach it and my notes.
