From this day until June 10th we went through out regular business: four hours of drill a day and dress parade in the evening with the exception of Sunday when visitors crowded our camp so that we barely had room to walk around. We received good meals and plenty of delicacies from the many lady visitors. All this time it has been very warm during the day but the nights have been quite chilly and damp.
