1862 December 26 New Bern, N.C.

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

Dec 26

Have been at work on the pay-rolls most
of the day, and they are, thank God about done
Got a check on the sutler today, the first one I have ever
had, and got some butter and candy and dates to nights
as my cough is very troublesome.  Have had a hard
days work, but I feel that god will keep me and all will be well.

MSS 11293
