Dr. Fairchild and I drove to Manila and were not very successful in getting what we wanted. He did find a pair of telephone linemans climbing irons, which should be useful in getting specimens. I bought some canvas preservative.
There has been continuous rain here since I came.
Went out again with Dr. Fairchild in the afternoon and ordered a metal box for finished films.
We all went to tea with young Mr. & Mrs. Fairchild a few miles outside Manila. (This family is no relation to Dr. Fairchild and he has only known them since coming here). Very unique house and pleasant time as those things go.
Returned and dined at the hotel. Mrs. Fairchild suggested simplyfing the name question so we will use first names in the future.
I’m standing up well under the strain of all this running around but do not know how long it can continue.
