On Friday, the 4th of April, I received a telegram from Washington that I have to go by transport to the Philippine Islands.
Diary of Jacob Cuznar
On 8th of May, a number of my friends with whom I served left the Philippines, sailing on a transport steamboat towards America.
On the 5th of May, we were checked by the doctor and received permission to remain on the Philippine islands.
We arrived in Iloilo on Sunday, the 30th April at 7 o’clock in the morning and sailed off in the afternoon.
