It has rained all night but it is clear just in the morning for a few hours. We have a short drill in the morning. We have ham and cheese issued to us for the first time. We also have fresh meat today. We are all expecting some mail but none came. In the evening, Johnson, L[ewis] Williams and I had a good lunch all to ourselves consisting hamburger, bread and water. We enjoyed that very much. It is still raining and storming when Taps is sounded. [Frank] Hustead, Read and [Jesse] Murphy are on the sick list.
