Mar 1-4th
Been laying around catching up on my letter writing. Wrote another article for the paper. Hot as Hell.

5th Mon.
Got my 1st 3 day pass. Went with Arthur Verville to Manilla and slummed all around the city. Purchased [? illegible] an Elgin Pocket watch for some canned goods and 50 pesos (15 pounds). Met a bunch of other boys and got pretty well stewed up. A few places are opening up but prices are high – Egg sandwich and coffee 2.30, 1 shot of whiskey with orange juice 1.50, chop suey 5.00. Whiskey 20.00 per qt. In camp at 4.30.
