From Tiif.otlny's D.-iy
Private Charles Wit tst ruck of
the Medical department at Fort
Mills, Corregidor, Philippine Is
lands, writes to his frtend E. II.
Wescott, of what he thinks, of those
islands, and expresses his opinion
that swimming in the Missouri is
better than in the Pacific:
Ft. Mills. Corregidor. P. I ,
October 2'Jth, 1!MS.
Mr. K. II. Wescott,
My Dear Friend:
I thought I- would drop you a few
lines, telling you how I am getting
along, and of the country over here.
I am wel and getting along all
right. How are you and all the
Plattsmouth people. I am in a hos
pital, at this time, as a member of
the medical corps, being transferred
from the Coast Artillery about two
weeks since. I liked the artillery
very well, but suffered two sun
strokes, as the tropical sun is sure
hot, and as I could not stand it had
to get out of it. In the medical de
partment, I am out 'of the sun. 1
have charge of a ward next week,
but let me tell you things have been
busy in the hospital for some time,
but many of the patients are now
returning to duty, and that relieves
the stress of work, which we liav?
been having. I received five copies
of our home town paper, today, and
I sure was glad to see what was
going on thought the rapers wore
sent away last winter, and have
been in the Philippine Islands since.
I had thirteen letters yesterday
and four today.1 My birthday was
yesterday. October 28th. I was IS
years of age. I have seen 11
months service. and have purchas
ed $150.00 in bonds, and am carry
ing $10,000.00 insurance. That
looks like some patriotism don't you
think fo. I sent mother some silks
from Manilla' and Corregidor. per
haps you saw them. There arc very
few white peopl."? here. We left
'Frisco harbor, about three o'clock
on February nth. and after the
good old II. S. A. disappeared from
our view behind the skylone. we
did not see land again until "we
passed Leper Island, which we only
saw from a distance. The next
place was Honolulu, Hawaii, where
we stopped, and took on coal and
water. We were there for four
days, and you bet we took in the
city, seeing all the sights, visiting
Updyle Beach, which is a bathing
resort. But let me tell you the Old
Missouri, down from Main street in
Plattsmouth beats it to a fare-you-well.
The stows were so sharp,
where we went I had sore feet for
a long time. We thought we would
get to see the Hulu Ilulu Miadens.
Ila! Ha! We sure were disappoint
ed, for not a one did we spy in our
24 hours on shore. The first thing
we old was to hit a restaurant,
where we got some friends things
to eat, as we had been eating stew
ed and boiled food for thirty-five
days. Many of the boys were sea
sick coming over. I escaped this
experience. But I must tell you we
have to hand it to Honolulu, it is
the swellest place I ever saw, with
everything growing green, cocoa
nuts, bananas and pine apples, all
growing in profuison. I never saw
its equal before. The state of Cali
fornia was a beautiful place, but
the Islands have it stood off, you
bet. Our next port was Guam,
where we coaled, but did not land, j
hut stayed over night and left the j
next afternoon. We reached Manil- I
la on March 12th, 1918, and have
been stationed on Corregidor since.
did not like it very well either.
The natives live In bamboo huts,
or shacks, with grass roots, built
on poles, hey live on rice, dried
fish and jerker crabou meat. A half
dozen live on 15 pesa, or what
would equal $7.50 U. S. money per
month. Cheap living I tell you.
You will remember Prof. N. C. Ab
bott, he told us, the Pasig river was
the dirtiest river in the 'World, and
I can testify to that fact also. He
was here some years gao. It. is
just like he told us. The Cholera
was here, but not so bad lately. I
was over to Manilla and celebrated
my birthday. Pretty place from a
distance, but filthy when you get
close to it. Must close, write soon.
