1863 January 15 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 15
Drilled in the Manual as it looked like
rain.  Read some in Spurgeons sermons
Two mails came today.  I got a good letter from
home tonight and answered it this evening.
It has rained some today and is going to be a
rainy night.  Got rather bad news from Vicksburg
to-night, but I feel that our cause is in the hands
of God and He will do what is right.  O God
strengthen my faith and purify my heart, and
bless my father and mother and brothers for
Jesus sake.  Made out discharge papers also for
Southie today.
