Everyone is happy and we have our boxes strapped. Had a “rough house” just to celebrate.
Rumors are now changed to certainties, & we are going home soon.
Wrote to several persons and finished packing boxes. Turned in our Krags, and reissued ‘bolos.
Rain all day. Wrote home & to Miss Crawford. Mosquitos very troublesome last night. Heard heavy guns –perhaps some foreign war vessel saluting Old Glory.
Relieved at 10 a.m. and slept until 4 p.m. “It rains & the wind is never weary.” Packed my box for shipment.
