1862 January 31

[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding, Co. F, 25th Massachusetts, currently on assignment to the Commissary Dept., on the steamer “Admiral”]

Slept with Phineas last night and
staid here today. Got a very long and
good letter from Mary and three from home
one of them containing one from Sam Smith
we weighed anchor and went up to the Eagle
where the rest of the regiment is, Saw Ed
Brown and paid him the two dollars I borrowed
of him. It is so rough I shall not go back tonight.
