of Manila by the American forces
one of the army officers was shown
through the old Spanish prison in
that city. He noticed a small open

asking its use he was told that pris

food was handed in on a plate, and
he handed the empty plate back,
but when he handed the plate back
with the food on it untouched, then
the jailer knew he was dead and
didn’t give him any more.”

is increased in size, and by this
