1862 November 4 New Bern, N.C.

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

Nov 4

Had a good drill this forenoon.  Read newspa-
pers most of the day.  Had beefsteak and sweet
potatoes for dinner.   Got news tonight that the expedition
had capture three or four hundred prisoners and eight
pieces of artillery.  Dont know whether it is true or not
but hope it may be so  This evening I staid out in the
house back of the tent most of the evening.  Have felt
pretty well today.
