1862 November 16 New Bern,N.C.

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

Nov 16
Went out on inspection this morning.  It has
rained nearly all day and is going to be
a rainy night.  I wrote a letter home this
afternoon.  Have enjoyed the day very well.
this evening George and I laid here in the tent and
talked in the dark.  a mail came in today
but I got no letters.
