Mrs. Wilson and Anne came out to lunch but Fenton and I did not join them as we did not wish to interrupt the developing system.
We developed 18 rolls of film, which completed all of my own pictures, leaving 20 rolls of David’s still to be done.
Mr. Worcester (son of late Dean Worcester) came in about 5 and asked Fenton and I to come to his house for a drink. We drove over with him. He had a very beautiful shell collection, obtained locally.
Anne came to his house later. She told me that the Fairchilds had decided to return to the U.S. at once and that she had telegraphed Quezon in Manila to know if he still wished to buy the junk. This settled the whole question of continuing further and meant that the expedition was definitely over.
Anne, Fenton, and I returned to Mrs. Wilson’s house and had dinner. Anne gave me two letters from M.P.B. the last one dated May 25, from Garrison. M.P.B. assumed that I was returning at once.
