January 27, 1863

[Louisiana] Tuesday.  Rained hard last night & this forenoon, preventing the Grand Review of the forces which was to have taken place before Gen. Auger this afternoon.  Had a Battalion drill in afternoon, but I have done no duty for the day, have a diarrhea.  Have been issuing clothing to the Company, & this evening orders are issued to have all the men furnished with good suits, if they are not yet supplied.  Extra clothing, baggage, & ordnance stores are to be stored at this post, which looks like a forward movement soon.
