January 27, 1942

Manila was bombed at 9:30 p.m. We were all in Gabriel’s house. All of a sudden the windows began to shake and there were dull explosions that shook the house. Anti-aircraft guns started firing immediately. The children began to shout and rejoice. Reprimanded the boys for shouting. They must not show their feelings. Our Japanese neighbors put out their lights.

Will sleep early. Will they bomb again tomorrow? Can hear the drone of a plane. Another bombing? No, it is Japanese.
