Lebak to Milbuk, Mindanao, Philippines

Written by Edward Beckwith on Thursday, January 25, 1940

Went ashore early and went inland through the forest on the 2 mile train of the lumber camp. David found a good many interesting specimens and we did not return to the boat until noon. The trip was fairly interesting with some wonderful jungle badly mutilated in places by logging operations.

As soon as we returned I began photo operations on the specimens of which there were a good many. David found the eucalyptus he had come for grew 50 miles further south at the port of Milbuk, another and smaller logging camp. So we started for it at about 1:30 P.M., reaching there around 9 P.M. after running through a rather heavy rain squall.

Anne read aloud to me a chapter in Wallace on Menado and vicinity.

We had a very active and busy day.
