July 2, 1863

1Tuesday.  Received a letter from Pamelia dated June 15th.  All well at home.  Bless the Lord, O my soul, & all that is within me, bless his holy name.  She had received the two letters written at Algiers, 7 knew that we were here before Port Hudson.  Went out to the 3rd Brigade Commissary, to draw rations for the 3rd, 4th, & 5th [illeg. word]  Only a part of the articles we wanted were on hand, so we waited for teams to come from the landing, & at length, got nearly all except rice & beans.  Issued the rations in the afternoon.  Some new recruits came in toward night, whom we shall have to draw for tomorrow.
