We all slept on board and for the first time for many nights didn't have to fight mosquitoes. The rest of our regiment were relieved in the afternoon by the Montanans and all are aboard the Senator and we are awaiting sailing orders. We had bacon, potatoes and coffee for breakfast and soup for supper. Our grub is well cooked but there is not enough of it. But, our officers promise that our rations will be O.K. in a few days.
