I had an excellent night last night. I slept in bed for long stretches and woke up at 5 a.m. very well rested.
At 9 a.m. I went to Oceanic Commercial central office at Pasong Tamo for my weekly consultations. Returned home for a needed rest before lunch. It continues to be very hot, with the temperature 100 degrees Fahrenheit or very near. We needed rain very badly. This prolonged dry weather is hard on the farmers. In our Hacienda del Carmen in Pampanga, this prolonged lack of rain is interfering with planting of sugar cane.
At 4 p.m. went to China Banking Corporation and returned home early, to wait for former Ambassador to Spain, Colonel Manuel Nieto, who arrived by plane last night and wanted to see me. We were both very happy to see each other. I did not inquire about his illness.
I had the surprise visit of Nonong Quezon.
