Folder 3 Letter, September 27, 1946

This letter states that Maysaysay received “Rainka’s letter from August 27, 1946 and the certificate fir the Hq & Hq Co of the Dan Marcelino Sector.” Magsaysay believes that this certificate will clear up the mess around the recognition of the guerrilla units. However, Magsaysay said that the guerrillas will not believe that this will be cleared up until they actually receive compensation. “You can not blame them, if they must have to think thus now. When the government that promised them so much when they were out there sweating blood in Bataan, Corregidor, Capas Concentration Camp and in the lonely, malaria-infested mountains of Sawang and Pinatubo does not now sincerely believe, it seems,… these men must have to think that someone, somewhere must have broken faith with them.”
