It has rained all night and day since last night. At 8 o’clock we witness a beautiful rainbow. This is the first one I have ever seen after dark. The troops and recruits are still laying in the bay. Wilson, [James] Woodward, [Walter] Collins, Joseph Johnson, John Barnes and [Frank] Sullivan are on the sick list.
