July 18, 1863

All quiet.  No orders yet for moving.  Pontoon train passed up today, towards Potomac.  Looks like an invasion.  Hope we may……  Am confident if we do we will succeed.  Boys all think living on the good things in Pennsylvania much better than beef and flour here.  Reinforcements arrived at or near Winchester.
