Diary of Alfred Burton Welch

June 7th & 8th & 9th 1899

On sick call with my head. Slept most of time –all done up. Wrote to Tops and sent her some photos. Cool winds. A good deal of sharpshooting at the church. They are using a cannon, too –but it has yet done any damage. The boys are having a parade and a Salvation Army Rally with a captured brass band of 30 or 40 pieces. It’s a fine concert.
