Weather is keeping fine. Our outpost came in at 8:00 a.m. and they reported everything quiet on the line. But, some shots were exchanged but no one was hurt. Excitement has not cooled down any and we are still kept in our quarters but have strengthened the outpost. We have seven men on guard and ten on outpost now. All the boys are busy getting their mail ready as it will leave in the morning. There are ten men on the sick list and we have no word from the hospital.
