Transcript Dear Folks, Thursday, 13 November J.941. Things are going along pretty much the same here. We are still fairly busy trying to get a lot of work done. The weather is a little cooler than a lot which we have had. Some of the off icers on here are going up to Baguio for a week fs leave♦ It is about eighty or hundred miles from Manila here and up in the mountains where they actually have a frost now and then. It Is a mighty pleasant change for anybody after very much of this sort of weather down here. There is another mountain place only about an hours drive from here which I hope to visit before we leave here. I don't want any leave right now though. I see that my last letter is being held up in Midway along with the Jap Ambassador. So this may be only two o» three days behind it. However as there ia a clipper leaving tomorrow I thought that I would get off a short note to let you know how I am getting along• E verything i still quiet around here although for one reason or another very few people predict that it is going to stay that way. It looks to me as though the British and we are going to call Japan* s bluff pretty soon now. I donH suppose that they even know what they are going to do, they are certainly mad though. The Tokyo radio rants on about Roosevelt all evening long. In any case we are pretty comfortable and contented here. If the families could just be out here this would undoubtedly be the choice sea duty of all these days, but of course I wouldnH want them out here right now as long as things stay as threatening as they are. They just ran off an election out here and the Administration outfit won in regular American political machine style. They have all sorts of ways for making It difficult for these half educated people to vote for anyone except the crowd that is already in power. I hope that both of you are well and happy. I wish that we could ha ve some of the severity of your winter weather out here. I also hope that my Christmas presents arrive in time, although from my experience in trying to get an annixiersary present back on time I am not very optimistic about it.
