Frank Woodruff's Views Regard
ing the Old Spanish City.
The following letter Hfl(lrcsre1 to Heriry
Macula will be of Interest to tho public:
Manila, Dec. 21, 1898.
Mk. IIknry Lincoln.
Dear Friend: Well I will try
and write a few lines as the mail
will leave most any day. I re
ceived the Christmas box you sent
me it arrived the 16th and you can
bet I received it with open arms,
everything was in good shape ex
cept the apples and prunes. About
half the prunes had moulded and
the large apples wtra spoiled, but
the yellow ones came through per
fect and the medium sized red ones
were nearly as good. There has
only been .1 few boxes come so far
only three or four so far for Co C;
but the St Paul which is due any
day will fetch the last of the boxes
and one of the largest mails com
j ing to Manila. This is a very in
teresting place, all stone houses
with fiat roofs; they are covered
with a kind of crockery roofing.
There are a great many large
churches also a great many old
ruins in the city. Whon an earth
quake tumbled a building down it
was left as the Spaniards seemed to
think it was better to build in a
new place than clear away the ruins.
Manila has a population of 350,000
Spaniards, Philapeanos and Chin
ese men are the principle inhabi
tants and it is comprised of two
places, Old and New Manila; a river
separates the two places. Old Ma
nila is surrounded by a large stone
wall thirty or forty feet thick in
most places. We are quartered iu
Old Manila, and have good quarters.
One company of the Oregons are
at the palace and another at the
custom house. The rest of the
regiment is iu the barracks that
were formerly occupied by the
Spanish army. We do duty inside
the city. The Philapeanos are steal
ing powder all the time and the
guards have been doubled. We
were ordered to fill our belts with
cartridges and have our guns ready
as there was an insurgent . scare,
but nothing came of it. We heard
today that the insurgents had
ordered the Americans to evacuate
a block house and the First Cali
fornia were sent out and the insur
gents consented to withdraw, but we
may have trouble yet.
Charley Lovelace is about to be
appointed corporal and I think he
will get it al right. We have dress
parade three times a week and we
put up as good a one as any regi
ment here. The Oregon baseball
team is holding its own. We re.
emits expect to get paid in a few
days. This is a free silver country;
a half bushel of money here is only
worth a couple of American dollars.
You have heard the pops say that
cheap money makes prosperity,
but it looks to me as if the cheaper
money is the more y-prt; have to
work to get a little, pf The
natives are all glad to work for a
few dollars . Mexican money a
month, and there are plenty of
beggars here to. Well I think
when I get back I will still "be a
republican. The timber is fine
though not very large. The boys
have all got fine canes of the
different timber. I will scud you
one when I can get a good one.
There are lots of saloons her.e . and ,
they do a big business; nearly all
the stores sell whiskey, and. there
are hundreds of natives selling
cigars or ice cream on the streets.
Fruit is cheap and so is tobacco and
wine, but beer is high.
We are only allowed out in the
evening between 6 and half past
nine, if we go out in the day we
have to get a pass and it is only
good for a couple of hours. We
are getting too lazy to live from
lying around so much. We take a
walk around town in the evening
but it gets old as there is nothing
new going on, the same old thing all
the time. We have a pair of box
ing gloves which we keep pretty
busy most of the time. If has
rained a little, but most of the time
it has been pretty warm. The
Spanish soldiers seem to be all
right but I don't like the priests and
I guess nobody else does. Well, I
hear that six regiments of regulars
are on their way to relieve the
Volunteeis so I would not be sur
prised to get back by the Fourth of
July, well I have written all I can
think of so I will close. Thanking
you for the Christmas box, with
best regards to your folks.
Your Friend
