It was very cold and cloudy this morning, but it moderated in the afternoon and rained in the evening with thunder and lightening. Was due to the 5th in the afternoon, staid with C. until nine o’clock. Reading Bulwer’s “Night and Morning.” Had a call today from the Chaplain of the 104th.

A lovely spring day worthy of the “Sunny South.” Woke this morning to find the sun shining warm the birds singing and the air redolent of spring’s indescribable perfumes. Went over to 6th in the afternoon. Stopped with Bundy. Luitchell came in and sat awhile in the evening. Staid all night with Brandy. He’s sick with cold.
