1861 August 31

[from the diary of Eugene M. Cox of the Albemarle Border Guards]

8 A.M. the sun light of another day has dawned upon us--all are cheerful and hopeful--8 P.M. Nothing worth writing transpired today more than we were mustered and our pay-rolls examined by the Col. of our regiment and are informed that we are to be paid off to-morrow--9 1/2 P.M. Taps

MSS 38-221
