This is a fine day but we have several light showers. We had drill in the morning, but one half of our regiment is playing ball with the South Dakota Regiment which resulted in 11 to 6 in favor of Pennsylvania. There was no drill in the evening. Seven men are on guard and two on outpost. We also received smokeless cartridges in exchange for the old. All is well on the line. The same men remain on the sick list.
