1863 January 28 New Bern, N.C.

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

Jan 28
Rainy all day. I read some and played
chess and backgammon some.  This evening
George and I talked over philosophy.  I have made
out Mortons papers for a discharge.  We got news that
Burnside has crossed the Rapphannock in
two places, and I hope it is true if it is Gods will.
