correct, but I was told that they were caused by regulations from the

Ministry of War for which the camp authorities were not responsible.

                 For the most serious individual complaint in my opinion, and

one that it was impossible for me to investigate, was that concerning

the health of the prisoner Krusinger, whom I already mentioned

as being ill with kidney trouble.  The man seems to be growing

worse, and complains of having no proper food, and of not having good

medical treatment.  The camp surgeon who attends him, informed me

that it was quite impossible for any patient under his care to grow

worse;  but the prisoners' experience did not coincide with this opinion.

                 The men at Aonagahara have plenty of opportunity for exercise,

and have what books and reading matter they want;  ,  but they do not

have the opportunity of pursuing any trade  or of occupying themselves

in some like manner, and I understand that they are desirous of obtaining

some such privilege.

                 The condition on the whole seems to be good in the camp.  The

cases of the maltreatment of prisoners I believe to be either exceptional

instances, or else much exaggerated.  The locals of the prison,

and the opportunities it offers for exercise and a healthy life, are

unusually good.

                 I left Aonagahara at half past four o'clock.

                 I have the honor to transmit herewith thelast of complaints

which I have already mentioned together with its translation.
