March 29, 1863

Sunday.

Had a Reg. inspection in the morning & no other duty for the day.  No religious services, the Chaplain having returned to baton Rouge yesterday.  Wrote a long letter to Father in [the] afternoon.

At Donaldsonville the Bayou Lafourche flows out of the main river to the S. W. & South entering the Gulf considerably to the west of the principal mouths of the Mississippi.  We are to march from this place to the N. O. O .& G.W. Railroad, near Thibodaux, some thirty odd miles distant, our tents & baggage to go by steamer.
