1862 December 30 New Bern, N.C.

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

Dec 30
Rainy to-day by spells and not very
comfortable.  I straightened out the clothing
account, and did some other writing
One of Company A shot himself through the arm in a
fit of delirium caused by drunkeness, the ball pass-
ing through his arm.  Have not felt very well today.

MSS 11293
