[Louisiana] Monday. Rainy all the forenoon—the Reg. inspection postponed on account of the weather. Was engaged in making up my quarterly return of Ordnance & Ordnance Stores. In afternoon Lt. Jerrard took the Company our for skirmish drill. This evening I went down to the tent of the Adjutant of the 6th N.Y. & got some information on the subject of making Clothing & Ordnance returns, & on other matters pertaining to the keeping of Company accounts. Found the Adjutant (Francis) a very pleasant & accommodating fellow. Did not attend the prayer meeting on account of the necessity of making up my returns as soon as possible. This evening the wind is rising, & appearances indicate another cold snap. Finished a 12 page letter to Pamelia last night, & mailed it this morning. Also printed a little letter to Ikie, & enclosed it in Pamelia’s.
