February 1, 1863

[Louisiana] Sunday.  A mild showery day—no military exercises & no public religious services in the day time.  This evening we had a good prayer meeting in the Quartermaster’s tent.  The time was very fully occupied & all seemed happy to be there.  The tent was full, & I hope the meetings this week will be more fully attended than they were the last.  We hope to have the Surgeon’s tent for the meetings, as it will accommodate more than any other on the ground.  Wrote letters to the fathers of Levi Gardner & Robert F. Wiggins, who died at Chesapeake Gen. Hospital in December.
