[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding of the 25th Massachusetts]
This forenoon took account
of stock. Overhauld all the
stuff belonging to the government, and
mad a list of them. After dinner went
ashore in the boat. First went to the
Lieutenants office, then to see Brown then
to Capt. Goodrichs and then out on
the street. Bought a cap and some other
things, came back to the steamer in the
Zouaves boat. Have been reading the
papers, and wrote a Letter to Jennie
this evening. Have enjoyed today much.
It has been a nice day and I have felt well.
