January 24, 1863

[Louisiana] Saturday.  Pretty languid and weak today, though not sick.  I find that I have little physical strength here in this country, even when I feel otherwise pretty well, and think the same is true of nearly all in our Reg.  The men were busy all the forenoon washing clothes, & this afternoon have been clearing up a parade ground in part of the encampment.  The weather is mild this evening & the men are feeling pretty well.  I think the health of the Reg. is improving.
