The weather is clear but hot. We had regular drills. We furnished twelve for guard duty and patrol. In the afternoon I was detailed to go after meat to the meat boat. Although the water was rough and excitement high, we returned safely at 7:00 p.m. Our rations are poor and there is much dissatisfaction prevails.
