Feel sick this morning
Bury Farwell tonight
Woke up with heavy firing this morning
I am on guard today
Heavy marching order
Move our camp closer to the enemy
Prepare to attack them
Start about midnight with 60 rounds of cartridge?
I begin to realize what a damning thing a battle field is.
Such sights as I have witnessed and taken part in today will never be erased from my mind.

Sleep outside last night during heavy rain and am wet through
See George Monks?
Slept out again tonight
Remain at the battery yet rain almost constant
Balloon filled today
We had a hard march today no fight
Return to camp
Rain heavy get wet
A bright sunny morning
Our regiment make a road for the siege
Part of them go on picket
Another pleasant morning
I write to my Wife
Receive a letter from my Wife
