February 23, 1863

Monday.  As there was no drill this forenoon, & the Co. were employed in clearing the parade ground.  I spent it in filling up the Muster Rolls of the Co. for Jan. & Feb., and made so good progress that I have finished them this evening, though it is now pretty late.  We have hoped to get another mail today, but none came.  We understand that one has arrived at New Orleans.  This p.m. had a very good Batt[alion] Drill, followed by company inspections.  Our men improve in soldierly appearance daily.
