1862 February 27

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

Feb 27 Rained hard in the night but
I lay comfortable. Phineas was on
guard and to day has gone off to the New
York and has not got back. We went out
into the field to discharge what muskets
had not been discharged, afterwards came
back and have the rest of the day to clean
up and get ready for inspection to-morrow
Have been reading today in “Dunallan.” This
evening Holden has been fiddling, and
there are a couple of negroes have been singing
now. It has been quite a pleasant day and
I have enjoyed Gods blessings very well
though I am not as thankful as I ought
to be in view of His great mercies.
