I was oyer to new Manila today aud
bought a diuner which cost $155. Hill
of fare as follows: Mucin on i soup,
eggs, beefsteak, coffee, buns, cheese and
Spanish beans. You can eoe that thiegs
are quite high iu the food line. This is
the first meal I have bought since leav
ing Honolulu ud I never enjoyed any
thing so well iu ray life. 1 think 1 will
have to have another one iu a few days .
This was a auisli reeturant. We got
a piece of meat about tho sue of a fig
and it cost twenty cents. Holt led toda
is cheap here, only four cents, Spanish,
per bottle which is a trifle less thau two
cents our money, and wiue ia ten cents.
We have only five sick uieu iu our com
pany now aud they are not very tick. I
have a Spanish dollar 1 am trying to
save to bring home. It was coined iu

August 2lst. We had a little exile
ment in our quarters last night. Musi
cian Pardey was going through with a
monkey on his Bhoulder. In passing a
table it leaped oil and grabbed a lamp
and turned it over, setting Gre to the
oil and Furdy 'e clothes. He jumped on
the bed and covered himself up with a
blanket, while some of the other boys
smothered the flames that were on the
floor. The monkey ran and jumped on
a bed and crawled under a pillow.
We take 100 pounds of flour to the
bakery and receive 100 loavee cf bread

rived this morning and I received seme
mail which was very acceptable.
