Reached Manila. First ride in electric cars from Customs House to Grand Hotel. No rooms there, went Delmonico, much better.
Hot day. Arrived in Manila a ten oclock, Capt. came & met me, and looked after my baggage. Came to the Del Monico hotel, capt. staid to lunch & dinner, and all night, this is a terrible poor place, for $150 per month, nothing worse than these Spaniards & Filipinos.
