1862 November 7 New Bern, N.C.

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

Nov 7
Had a very cold rough night last night
I did not sleep much but sat round the fire
After coming of guard I finished the book called "Temper"
which I commenced yesterday and which I like
much.  This afternoon I moved into George Lowes tent
as I am to be clerk of the company.  We had a good
talk this evening.  O how continually is God battering
upon me.  George and I read the Bible to-
gether, and then we united in prayer and com-
mitted ourselves to Gods care
