[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding, Co. F., 25th Massachusetts]
Played chess some this forenoon as it
was rainy. Made out descriptive lists for
Scollay and Bailey as they went to the general
hospital. Read "The Jewish Persecutor" a book
which I got from the Library. We got a report
that Foster has taken one of the forts at Wilmington
but we hardly believe it, though we hope it may be true.
