1862 November 15 New Bern, N.C.

[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding, Co. F., 25th Massachusetts]

Nov 15
Drilled in the bayonet exercise this forenoon
this afternoon cleaned up my equipments and
gun.  We had some of Johns Jelly, and also some of Frank
Adams apple sauce for supper.  This evening George and
I have been talking and singing.  I also this forenoon
showed George about  Phonography.  Have felt the protec-
tion of my Heavenly Father abundantly to day.

Phonography: an early term for the Pitman method of shorthand writing

MSS 11293
