The weather is fine but I am not a bit well. I reported at sick call and was taken off duty again. The doctor says nothing but rest will cure me. I can’t use my right arm at all having a big carbuncle right under the arm. Companies A, B, C and K went across the bay to do garrison duty while the rest of the troops are advancing. A salute was fired at noon today in honor of Coronation Day. Fifteen men are on the sick book and seven are in the hospital.
