"Resolute" at Manila today, on time, after a smooth passage from Hong Kong, with everyone on board well and enjoying zestfully the entertainments provided, which included lectures, a dance on the broad, gaily decorated decks, and a St. Patrick's Day feast, not to emphasize unduly the soothing 80 degrees temperature supplied by the Weather Department, while we at home were facing those icy blasts.
