H. Beaber - In the Philippines - Friday, January 9, 1941-1942

Pedro and Peping brought our nets and a few other things for which we are very thankful. Now, we shall have a little peace from the mosquitoes. They are very bad. We are getting used to the hard beds.

The Red Cross has set up a small kitchen and makes coffee for everyone in the morning. But one has to stand in line for an hour. We can make out breakfast and then eat two lunches during the day. Almost living on bread and beans (canned) of which we have a dozen cans.
