This is another beautiful day. This being inspection day, there are no drills; but, the companies had a strict inspection of dress and arms by regular U.S. officers. No one was called down at this inspection. We all wear white trousers and blue blouses and campaign hats. Everything must be in the best of order. Everything is being reported quiet at the outpost. Our liberty is once more ours. We have eight on guard and eleven on outpost. The same number of men remain on the sick list. A good number of our men are vaccinated again.
