Anne and Marian came ashore and looked over all my films selecting a considerable number from which I will have enlargements made here. Anne seemed to enjoy looking them over and making a selection for prints for her album. Marian had quite a hard time keeping Anne entertained and happy. I think she spends most of her time in an effort to do so, entirely with the idea of helping David with his plans. Anne and Marian as well as the rest are considerably restricted. They cannot hunt shells until they get a permit, they cannot use the launch except to get to the boat, and they can drive inland only a short distance without being stopped by some soldier. Marian thinks we may be kept here until the end of the war. She heard of someone from the Am. Museum who got stuck in these parts during the last war.
I walked out with Anne to Devin’s house, which had a sign “Bettiel Molucca Mission”. He was not at home. Anne had with her one of the crickets we got in Buru and which she wanted to release from the cage in some garden. The Devin’s garden was unsuitable so we carried it all the way to Hamel’s, where I let it out. Anne is quite humane sometimes for a big game hunter.
Hugo and Fenton came in and stayed until dinner.
