Tuesday. 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.
