On the move by sunrise this morning. Passed through Mt. Jackson and Newmarket. Camped about 10 ½ o’clock at the foot of the Massanutten mountain. Leave at sunrise tomorrow morning to cross the mountain.
Rained very hard last night. Thought I was well sheltered, but found that I had made my bed across a small ditch which soon filled up and was rather unpleasant to lay[!] in, but I went to sleep & woke up at daylight feeling “right side up with care.”[
