1861 September 28

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

We are still on piquet--and must stay on until to-morrow morning--has cleared and we have a promise of fair weather--skirmishing has been kept up for the last few days--9 P.M. Nothing worth noting has occurred to-day--we are cautioned to be very watchful--all very hungry--have not had a good meal since we have been posted here

MSS 38-221
