1862 January 2 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 2
A very pleasant day.  I went out to
company drill this forenoon for exercise
The captain drilled us for the first time since
he came back.  After drill I washed some things
This afternoon I lay in the tent and read some.
This evening I read one of Spurgeons sermons
aloud.  It was a very good sermon on the words
"prove me now."  Have felt a sweet peace in
God to day.
