8 Sun.
Navy was supposed to feed us, but now it is all off and we had to get our kitchen going. Then they threw 51 more men at us, so now it means a total of 91. Veretle and Soie [? illegible] sure taking a screwing on this deal. On our way to Bugoa [maybe Bugcaon?].

10 – Tues
Landed this morning and are camped about 8 miles out of Bugoa. Waiting orders.

13 Friday
Arrived at the Co. at 4:00 and it is a mighty nice feeling. Lots of mail waiting, packages too. Feel OK.

Read letters and straightened out in the tent.

15th Sun.
A nice quiet day. For supper potato salad, fresh pork chops, gravy, apple sauce, bread, cake and coffee. Raining as usual.

16th Mon.
Nice day. Fix flat tire. Cut piling [? illegible].

17th Tues.
3 letters from home – July 3,4, and 5th. Cut piling, finished at noon. No rain for a change.

18th Wed.
Leaving for Del Monte tomorrow.

19th Thurs.
Left Valencia thru MalayBalay, Del Monte and then Bugoa. Dusty as Hell. Saw the show “Patrick the Great.” Was very good.
