Mr. L. -. Dolt has received the fol
lowing letter from his son, Lieut, Le
land Bolt, who has been stationed in
tie Phillipiles for the past year but
who has more recently been trans
erred to China:
Oct. 17, 1922.
I just returned a few days ago from
i wonderful trip to the Southern Is
ands. Once during our tour we are
Miowed to make this trip on detached
ervice and as I am leaving the P. 1.
tery soon, I took advantage of it. The
;ea was very calm and peaceful in
iite of the fact that tile China Sea
. well known for -being wild and
voolly during typhoon season. We
vent to Zamboauga which is on the
sland of Mindanao and not very far
rom Borneo. We have a post there
nd it is about the prettiest post in
he whole army, right on the water
nd built around the old Spanish fort
Windanao is inhabited by Moros, a
,ather tlerce tribe but they prefer the
rotection of the U, S. rather than in
tependence for they don't like the
)ther IPhilipino tribes. They are all
\lohammedans and they wear the little
-ed cap like the Turks, in fact it re
ninds we more of Turkey than the P.
.. I went. out to some of the villages
vhere only Moros live and it is quite
nteresting to see them. They are
arger than the F'ilipinos and quite
lerce when angered. Back in the re
noto parts some of them are still head
uinters, but I didn't get quite that
ar from civilization.
The Noros are very fond of the
>rightest and loudest colors that they
-a-n obtain and they make beautiful
.able covers and similar articles. The
,vomen's dresses are a rare sight. They
Xveave a square pliee of cloth made
11) of every (olor inagiinable and wrap
tround themselves for a dress.
C'ailbo is certainly a beautiful little
>lace and is quite more tropical than
\laiila, it Is just lined .with cocoanut
alills and other trees Imiaking a very
tense shade and the climiate is prefer
0)le to .ianila even though it is just
thenit seven delgrecs from tihe equator.
I don't think though that I would like
.o be stationed there for good, it's too
ong between boats.
.I ami to leave for China the 15th of
'ovecber, but in the meantime I want
o go to haguio the mountain prov
nce which has a delightful cool, some
Aies cold climate. It Is in northern
biuzon and we are allowed to spend
:mle mlonthi there during our tour to re
ute,:crate from the hot sun, or what
Wver ailment one possesses. The 11101111
ain tribes are quite distinctive too, the
gorotes, they too do not like the Fili
Aino, who belong mostly to the Tagalog
ribe. I can tell you more about them
when I get there, which I iwant to do
ibout the 18th.
Trouble in China seems to be pick
ig up so I may get to see a little ex
aitemierkt whlenl I arrive but the trou
ale with thle ':hlinos is that they have'
~o call their war off when someone
)elcnlging to ano(therl nation wvants to
;o by or near the scene of action amnd
they must stop In the afternoon in
Lime for tea also. If they keel)> on
Ighting, as it were somebody might
;et accidlently killed.
Best wishes to all,
