1863 January 23 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 23
Still dull and cold. I have not
drilled but charged some clothing
and have been reading.  Have read some in
“Spencers Sketches” and like it very much.  Played
chess with George this evening.  Frank Adams
was in here writing a letter.  Five of our boys
got in the guard house for leaving the guard
