The steamer Hayes came in tonight
bringing a mail. I got nothing and
there is not much news from Virginia.
Phineas got a box from home. I wrote a letter
for Kinsman. Had a company drill this afternoon.
Tattoo was changed to 7.30 after which time the
men are required to keep in their tents on

Have thought considerable of God and hope
that He will direct me in His ways through
my savior Jesus Christ.
