David and I called on Admiral Hart, Commander of the Asiatic Fleet, about protection for the junk between Hong Kong and Manila. He was not home, but we saw his three daughters and left a message with them.

Did not sleep well last night and not up to the mark today.

Went in afternoon to spot near Baguio where the government is building a series of terraces with Igorot labor. Marian had an attack of pain in the back and arms, which did not last long but David was somewhat worried.

David called up Tamesis, head of forestry in Manila and he agreed to come here with two cars on Thursday and make the coastal trip, starting on Friday.

Went to bed early.
