Marian asked me to do some errands in the Fairchild’s car which I accomplished successfully although feeling badly. I told her later I had a slight fever and she mixed up something and added an aspirin tablet. I had the fortunate opportunity to put it all down the sink.
A man, whose name I did not get, came in on a steamer from Hong Kong and gave a glowing description of the beauties of the junk.
I left the Fairchild’s room and went to bed at about six.
Lieut. Commander Doyle called me up from the Cavite Navy Yard at noon and asked me to tea at Admiral Smeallie’s house tomorrow. I refused as the Fairchilds had planned an all day picnic with the George Fairchilds. This also was called off because David and I were both feeling seedy.
