My cold was bothersome and affected my enjoyment of the very remarkable scenery. We climbed up 4000 feet over a high pass which was the most spectacular trip I have ever made. Finally dropped down to the coast, stopping often to secure one of David’s priceless specimens, turned north at the coast for 60 miles and reached Vigan at about 7, where we put up at the Forestry Headquarters. They gave us a dinner, which for number of dishes served was a record.
I had a big shock on arrival where Tamesis told me I was to sleep in his room. There was nothing to be done about it but pity myself. Unpleasant to contemplate after a tiring day. Just a possible loop hole occurred to me as I was not absolutely sure that it was he and not Sulit who did the snoring.
