1863 January 26 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 26
It has been a nice pleasant day.  This
forenoon I wrote some and played
backgammon with Wilder.  this afternoon I washed
all over.  I have been talking with Scollay but
did not say much directly on religion, but
I feel that I must do more for Gods glory, in
so far as I have opportunity.  I have yielded to
temptation sadly to day.  May God forgive me for
Christs Sake
