Monday. Went early to Col. Berges’ quarters, for the morning whiskey ration for the men, but the Col. said there was but little left, & I need not issue any today. The men were much disappointed. Spent all the forenoon in getting three days rations from the Brigade (3rd) Commissary. The three days extend to Thursday night. Met Genl. Banks while going out to the commissary. He is to review the “storming party” at 4 ½ P.M. At that hour both Battallions came out under their commanders, & formed in line, but after waiting till after 6 o’clock it was announced that Genl. Banks was unwell & not able to review them, but that if able he would review us at 10 tomorrow.
