9th Thurs.
Just heard Russia declared war on Japan. This is surely great news. All of us have great hopes now that the war will end soon. Some are even betting the end by dawn Aug 10. I can now follow past events that seemed so wrong and unjust before. ~ Just had news flash that Japan surrendered – Bedlam has broken loose in Camp (9:00 pm).

Aug 11 Sat.
Nothing definite as yet. All of us say – Don’t give Japan anything.

13 – Mon.
Mother’s birthday and the war goes on. Sure is hot.
