10 Fri.
Drove to Tacloban, took pictures. Bought souvenirs.

11 Sat.
Beautiful weather. Things are pretty nice now.

12 Sun.
Took things pretty easy all day. Lonesome.

13 Mon.
Down by the beach. Had air raid, 4 Jap B[ombers], Ack Ack got two. Had ringside seat. Beautiful sight.

14 Tues.
(Letter dated Oct. 30) Got 1st letter here from Marine and also Dad[? illegible]. A zero zoomed right over our area at about 100 ft., but never fired a shot. My hole didn’t seem deep enough.

15 Wed.
The rest of the boys came in tonight. But only the last days mail. Had a letter from Mother and one from Joe. Sure miss Marine’s letters.

16 Thurs.
Still no mail. Getting tiresome here.

17 Fri.
No mail. Got a good scaring. On truck again.

18 Sat.
A letter from Marine today sure seemed mighty swell. Was in a bloody mess this A.M. as personnel bombs badly injured 5 natives. The girl I held on the way to the Hosp. had her intestines in her lap. 2 of them have died.

19 Sun.
Worked all day. Fixed a tire. Muddy as Hell.

20 Mon.
Rain, rain, rain.

21 Tues.
No change. No mail.
