1861 September 30

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

9 P.M. This has been the most beautiful day--the sun in all his brightness and splendor has warned and enlivened us and although in plain view of the encampment of a powerful army of the enemy, we have really enjoyed ourselves--have gotten plenty of provisions and are doing well and in for the fight--Now all go to rest--

MSS 38-221
