June 25, 1863

31Thursday.  Capt. Wood, Lt. Brown & self reported for duty in the volunteer camp at 9 o’clock.  Built a tent of reeds, bought provisions of commissary, & had dinner cooked by Lt. B’s boy. Lt. Phillips of the Me. 12th dined with us.  The volunteers do not seem to report very fast, nor is anything doing at organizing.  Serg. Mason of Co. “F” reported in [the] afternoon, making the aggregate from our Reg’t. nine.  Had a very quiet comfortable night in our new tent.
