The night had been pretty and the moon and stars have been shining bright. Very little firing was done on the line. At 9 a.m. we had Muster Roll right in the trenches. This has been the quietest Sunday since hostilities opened up but in the evening heavy firing was heard on the left. The Kansas Regiment and Third Artillery were engaged for several hours. About 100 rebels were killed but not a single American was wounded. In the morning Gilbert Cuite was on a bread detail when he was hit with a Mauser bullet and it went clear through his upper arm. He was taken to the hospital and it is feared amputation is necessary. Ouside of that all was well.
