March 25, 1863

Wednesday.

Took my place on the Court Martial, Col. Bissell, 25th Conn. Reg. President.  Tried several cases, & adjourned till tomorrow at 9 o’clock.  The Reg. moved to a firm spot on the other side of the road, but a short distance from the mud hole that we have lived in for the last three days.  When I got back to camp everyone looked cheerful, & certainly the grounds we occupied were the pleasantest we have had since we came to this place.  The grass was fresh & green, & there were several fine shade trees that contributed much to the beauty of the spot.  On our way to camp this afternoon I went to the Measles Hospital & saw the men of our Co. who are there, Lovejoy, Shores & Sawyer appeared to be doing well, but Farmer looked poorly, & thought he was losing strength.  Titcomb had got pretty well over the Measles but had an attack of Erysipelas in his face & head, & I fear he will not recover.  I talked with the Assist. Surgeon in charge, & asked him to try to get them removed to the Genl. Hospital.  He said he would try to have it done.
