1861 November 28

[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding, Co. F, 25th Massachusetts Infantry]

Gen. J. G. Foster reviewed and
inspected us this forenoon. I like
his looks and appearance much. This af-
ternoon have not drilled much, but have
been reading and enjoying myself very
well. It rains now (8 o’clock) and George
Lowe is writing a letter home. Ellinwood
is asleep on the straw. Phineas on guard and
Frank in the next tent. I went there and
staid some time this evening. I hear
that we are going to leave here next
Friday.
