[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding, Co. F, 25th Massachusetts]
Another pleasant day. Phineas did
not get back last night, but staid
on the New York. We had a regimental
review and inspection this forenoon. this
afternoon I finished Dunallan, and then
washed some clothes. This evening had a
nice chat with George and Frank about
our childhood and boyish occupations.
Blessed be God for His mercies. I have passed
a very pleasant day and yet how little
I do for Him. O Lord may I devote myself
more fully to Thee my Friend and Savior.
