1863 February 6 New Bern, N.C.

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

Feb 6
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.

MSS 11293
