1863 January 19 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 19

Upton drilled  us this forenoon and put
us through on double quick and bayonet
exercise.  This afternoon I read the Sentinel for the
9th and then got Mike Fitzgibbon to cut my
hair and then I offered to pay him but he would
take nothing.  I talked with him some time and then
went down and talked with Phineas till dress parade
This evening I wrote a letter home.  It has been a
pleasant day and is not as cold as last night.  I
read Lizzie Caldwell's marriage in the paper today.
