Was bitten by a spider last night, and badly poisoned. On guard 3rd relief. Nothing but beans to eat for two days. Hot. Relief came.
Rain all day. Wrote home & to Miss Crawford. Mosquitos very troublesome last night. Heard heavy guns –perhaps some foreign war vessel saluting Old Glory.
Relieved at 10 a.m. and slept until 4 p.m. “It rains & the wind is never weary.” Packed my box for shipment.
