The weather is as fine as ever but very hot. The regiment goes through its regular drills. We have seven men on guard [duty] and eleven on outpost. Everything remains quiet. Not many soldiers land in the guardhouse, all are pretty broke now and try to keep out. We have fresh meat today. I worked all day in the Commissary. Lieutenant [Robert] Wood remains sick in his quarters. We have seven men off duty on account of being sick.
