|Lt. Williams and Cpl. List in Tokyo|
2 September 1945 Sunday
Got up at 0715. We were anchored in Leyte Gulf. We moved out at 0815. I took some things down in the hold and got a different pair of shoes. Cpl. List was with me. Cpl. List and I read magazines on the fantail until about 1500. I got me a rubber life preserver. I got some ice cream and hersheys from the ship’s store. The waves are rocking the ship now, but not too bad. We['re] going straight to Japan. I wrote a letter to Harold E., and Ruthie. I went to church.
