Month January 1901

Thursday, 31 January 1901

Until now, nothing has been unloaded from the boat, nor was there anyone disembarking, except the American commandant and officials.

At about noontime, they announced the arrival of another boat from Manila, which was believed to be carrying a new group of deportees on board.

Thursday, 24 January 1901

We reached Agaña Bay at about three o’clock in the afternoon and anchored in front of the barrio of Piti.

Saturday, 19 January 1901

While we were already way out in the Pacific Ocean, the boat had some engine trouble and for this reason, we were constrained to stop from approximately three o’clock in the afternoon up to 11 o’clock in the evening.

Wednesday 16 January 1901

At about noon, the following prisoners from Malate boarded the boat:

Norberto Dimayuga, Juan Mauricio, Bartolomé de la Rosa, Silvestre Legaspi, Antonio Prisco Reyes, Doroteo Espino, José Buenaventura, Joaquín Agramon and Eulogio Gonzáles. Together with their servants, they comprise a total of 12 individuals.

At about three o’clock in the afternoon, the boat weighed anchor and we headed for the south, to reach the strait of San Bernardino.

Tuesday, 15 January 1901

At 11:00 a.m. we boarded Rosecrans that was anchored at Manila Bay. The prisoners on board were the following:

Artemio Ricarte, Pio del Pilar, Maximino Hizon, Mariano Llanera, Francisco de los Santos, Macario de Ocampo, Esteban Consortes, Lucas Camerino, Julián Gerona, Pedro Cobarrubias, Mariano Barruga, Hermógenes Plata, Cornelio Riquiestas, Fabián Villaruel, Juan Leandro Villarino, José Mata, Igmidio de Jesús, Alipio Tecson, Apolinario Mabini, Pablo Ocampo, Maximino Trías, Simón Tecson, Lucino Almeida, Pío Varicán and Anastacio Carmona. All in all, there were 25 of us, excluding the 9 accompanying assistants of the prisoners. Among them were my brother, Prudencio Mabini, Mr. Ocampo’s brother-in-law (Pablo), Mr. Rivera and a young son of Francisco de los Santos.

We boarded at about noon. Since there was no lunch prepared for us on the boat, we had to wait for dinner, as it was already late in the afternoon.

Nevertheless, I believe a number of us did not feel hungry then, for we were more overcome by our emotions that day.
