1861 November 27

[from the diary of Francis G. Hale of the 34th Ohio Zouaves]

It has been raining all
this morning and it
is very mudy under
foot the boys are
in high glee to think
they are in winter
quarters they are all
fixing up for to stay
this winter and are
getting things pretty
handy and convienint
the maile has not
started yet but will
soone and then we
will have big times
for a while if we
do not get whipt
out of here which
will take a good forse
to do that little job.
