1863 January 22 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 22
It has been a cold uncomfortable day
not been out to drill but went to dress parade.
Have played two games of chess, one with George
and one with Phineas, and have been reading
"life and duty" which I like very much.  this evening
George and I had quite an argument about people
being obliged to work beyond their strength.  Frank
Adams was in here too
