H. Beaber - In the Philippines - Monday, December 29, 1942-1945

Manila pronounced an open city but still, the Port Area and other places were bombed yesterday. Blackout was done away with last night. The north line is holding well, we hear, but heavy pressure in the south. We are assured that help is coming but of course, not told when. NED forces doing good work with their bombing planes.

Leo and I visit Misos and Cruzes in the P.M. I also see some of the friends living around our old location on Rubi St. Supper at Misos and walk home. Few street lights.
