October 3, 1863

It cleared off most beautifully last night.  At three the moon and stars were shining brightly.  Doing guard duty today.  Being a supernumerary had nothing to do but remain at the guard house.  Wrote two letters.  One to Ellen with a lead pencil.  Called to see the Dr. tonight.  Got some doughnuts.
