Met Dr. Smith and went with him, Marian and David to see his new official boat “Perry,” 87 ft. over all, 200 HP Washington 4 cycle Diesel, speed 11 knots, 20 ft. beam, 8 ft. draft. Very fine solid job – cost 90000 pesos.
Very heavy rain all day, — typhoon to the north. Lunched with Ted and Fenton. Latter failed to get job on “Coolidge.” Ted tried to persuade me to go with him this evening and offered to get me a “girl friend.” Ted drank 7 bottles of beer at lunch.
