It has rained all night and day and again our tents blow down about midnight. Everybody swears vengeance on the men who invented them for us (and I really can’t blame them). All night long we could hear the shooting on the line. Some even reached our camp and it is reported that one of the Colorado boys was killed and a few wounded. It seems that the enemy only cares to fight at night much to our disgust because we all would like to get a chance at them in broad daylight. Five men are on the sick list: [Curtis] Beatty, [Frank] Christopher, [Jacob] Landis, [John] Barnes and Sergeant [William] Martin. It is still raining.
