It has rained during the night but the sun is out as hot as ever. Our company goes through regular drills. We have fresh meat. I again ask for extra pay for my work but cannot get any satisfaction. In the evening we received a small mail. This day I send mail to S. R. Mason, Mrs. A., Miss Emma Jobes, Mrs. W. Ogle and Albert Asendorf. The same men remain on the sick list.
