Diary of Alfred Burton Welch

Monday 1-2-99

Same order in force and were issued smokeless. Expect to be called out today, on account of the order coming from Washington to take the arms of the insurgents. We are all anxious to get at ’em. Old Tacoma boy –McFadden, came over today & stayed for supper. He is in Co. B Idaho. Worked on tracing map all day. To bed early.
