Dear Sister: Yonr letters of Octoler

There is quite a good deal of sickness
here, hut mostly skin and blood diseases
whicn can be avoided. We hav a
fountain with a large basin in our court
yard and bathe in it or in the bay, and
I am learning to swim pretty well. We
are not bothered at all by lice, crabs, or
fleas, but there are lots of bedbugs in
my room, though they have not yet
gotten on my bed. Small mosquitos are
quite thick during the niichte but we
have been issued mosquito netting.
I would like to know bow Frank
Walsh is. When we left he was said to
have Brlght's disease. This was after
he had the measles. We were vacci
nate) a few days before landing here,'
but it did not take on me. I have eaten
all the fruit I could get, and have not
had on my abdominal bandage at all
and have been entirely well except that
my liver is a little sluggish, but they
have medicine in the army that will
wake op any kind of liver.
The heat is not all oppressive We
have a good deal of rain w hich preven's
the weather from getting much hotter
than August at home.
Your letter of November 10, came
yesterday. The government has charge
of the postollice here, so it is a United

the same as to any city in the United

the way and time mail comes heiebut
I believe it is quite irregular and all
steamers from San Francisco to Manila

put your letter in the postoflice and of
course it will come by the next mail.

I liko the natives; they are very
friendly, industrio is an 1 honest. I am
jetting so I can talk pretty well with
hem. Almost all of thu soldiers dislike
the natives, and they are almost all miite
lomesick. Most of the talk Is uhoi t
,'oi ng home.
The natives are considerably Hinaller
ban Americans, notwithstanding state
ments ol travelers. Iheir habit of car
rying burdens on their heads gives them,
en)eijilly the women, a inort ungraceful
gait. Their dresses are low in the neck
and high in the sleeves, but otherwise
quite respectable. I think the natives
are superior to the Ilawiians, except in
their home Huiroundings. The Filipinos
live very plain and dirty.
The Spanish soldiers sro small men.
