This is a beautiful day and for the first time in five days we are going through our regular routine of business. I went down to the bay for some meat by the water is still too rough to permit us to go out in the lighter. The Scandia left yesterday with a big mail and some of our sick soldiers on board, several men from the Tenth are among them who had been discharged. [Frank] Hustead, [Jesse] Murphy and Rollie Wilson are on the sick list.
