July 13, 1863

Very little skirmishing along the lines.  Raining all the morning.  Think we will not have an attack today.

3 o’clock P.M.  Left [illegible] to report to Major Braxton with 3 Caissons on Williamsport road.  Did not find him until I got on pontoon bridge.  Crossed and went into park about 1 mile from bridge at 11 o’clock.  Raining very hard.  Remained here until daylight.
