1862 September 28 New Bern, N.C.

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

Sept 28
Had the sideache and did not sleep any hardly
last night, but felt better this morning so I
went out t inspection.  Went to church this fore-
noon and hear Mr Mellen preach.  Walked back to
camp with the Colonel and had a good chat with
him.  Have felt unwell all day, but went out on dress
parade. I long to be at home with my friends, partic-
ularly on the Sabbath when compelled to do so many
things unsuitable to the day, but God forgive me for
all things He may see amiss.
