1863 February 8

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

Feb 8
Went out on inspection, to church this fore-
noon to hear Mr James who preached from the
words "Cast thy burden on the Lord."  This afternoon
heard Mr Stone preach on Esau selling his birthright
and I enjoyed the sermon very much indeed.  This
evening we had a prayer meeting in Proctors tent, a
very good one, and may God bless its influence on
the company.  Dr Whitney took charge of it, and George
and Holman prayed and I made a few remarks, and
prayed and God seemed to be near us.  I enjoyed it
much. Dick Collins came into our tent and we talked
with him sometime.
