The weather is beautiful. The nights are nice and cold. A good breeze is going most of the time. We are issuing each company their ten days' ration at headquarters. The Minnesota Regiment received a cablegram from their governor that said the regiment would be relieved inside of 60 days and also other volunteer regiments. This brings more joy among the boys but we still don't take much stock in it. We have been fooled before too often. We have no fresh meat this day. The same men are on the sick book and as many on light duty.
Soldiers mentioned
on this date:
