Lydia called up and asked me to come to lunch just as I was about to start for the Victoria Gardens. They sent for me at one. Stayed to lunch and supper. Lydia and Blanquita went back to the Bay View with me at 1 AM, making just 12 hours of the company of the George Fairchild family, which is somewhat of a strain on the nerves. Also too much drinking. I talked most of the time to Mrs. MacKay and had a better opinion of her than at any time.
The last part of the evening was rather good from talking to Lydia, Mrs. MacKay and Blanquita.
However, I will be glad to get on the boat and think that Manila will quickly fade into the past. I feel it is unlikely that I shall return.
