H. Beaber - In the Philippines - Saturday, April 16, 1941-1942

Last Wednesday, Leo took sick with the dysentery. We did not think it was serious at the time, but it got worse so that we called a doctor on Friday. He was delirious from weakness all night but a little better in the morning.

However, a Red Cross nurse happened to come to visit us this morning and upon seeing Leo sick, insisted on taking him to the hospital. So we called a taxi and off they went.

The rest of us all went to the camp to re-register. Seems the Japanese are making a check-up on all the ones released from camp. On my return, I looked for Leo at the emergency hospital, but learned that he had been taken to San Lazaro. It was too late to go there.
