[The] weather is fine. [Companies] A and B didn't leave. Fifteen men are on guard and 10 are guarding at the prison hospital at Santa Roukie. We drill one hour in the morning and have dress parade every other night. It has been lightning and thundering all day and in the evening we have one of the heaviest showers we have ever witnessed here. And, we all took a good bath on the back porch. We received some mail and I received on letter from home, the first one in about a month.
