We breakfasted at 7:00 o’clock and then policed our quarters. The Iowans are leaving at 8:00 a.m. to take our place on the firing line at Malolos. Afterwards, most of the boys are taken into the city and have a good time. All are pleased with the place providing if it is only for a short stay. Mitchell from Company B is apparently going to be appointed Commissary Sergeant in place of Anderson who received his discharge some time ago.
