12th Thurs.
Pres. Roosevelt died today. Sprained my ankle playing ball.

13th Fri.
Had my ankle xrayed, but there is nothing wrong but a sprain.

Got a few more letters from Marine. Sure seems nice to hear from her again.

16th Mon.
Played cards all day. Lost 28 pesos.

Getting damn monotonous waiting.

Just waiting. No news, except good mail service (10 days).

Still waiting. Had fresh meat.

24th Tues.
Started to load on LST #593 at 4:15. Done at 4:20. Hot and tired tonight.

On the way today. Sure having swell food. Baked spuds, steaks, hamburgers, and good coffee. We are using navy bunks.

26th Thurs.
Finest trip. Steaks, ice cream.

27th Fri.
Fresh potatoes, ice cold coca-cola.
