We had a nice rain shower during the night. Nine of our men went on Outpost and two are at Brigade Headquarters. This was a great holiday for the Catholics here... similar to out Decoration Day. All the large businesses and factories are kept closed. We have fresh meat. We have our regular drills in the morning and evening. I am sending my diary home and a silk shawl and a letter. Sam Rockwell, Herrington and Hustead are on the sick list.
