Zamboanga, Mindanao, Philippines

Written by Edward Beckwith on Sunday, June 23, 1940

Hugo and Fenton left early and I stayed to finish things up, undecided as to first how long I will stay out here. Mrs. Wilson told me to remain as long as I wished. It is a pleasant place with a large balcony next to a coconut grove and one particularly high coconut reaching up into the sky almost above the balcony. It is restful and away from the tension among members of the party on the boat.

I received a letter yesterday from MPB and one from Mrs. Greene, both dated June 3.

After finishing everything up before 11, I read and had lunch of baked beans and tomato juice, afterward taking a nap.

There was a tea at the country club a short distance away but I did not go over to it, and turned in at 7:30.
