May 27, 1863


Crossed to Brashear in the morning, got breakfast, & then went to see the boys in the Convalescent Camp.  After this, went to the Island Hospital & saw Edwin Young—found him better than when he left Opelousas.  The Dr. & nurse both spoke encouragingly about him.  His diarrhea is checked, though he still has remittent fever.  Returned to Berwick, & at 2 o’clock the Reg. crossed the river, & stacked arms near the 26th Maine.  We expected to wait until tomorrow, but about sunset orders came to pack up & take the cars for Algiers tonight.  Got on board at 10 o’clock, but did not leave till after 11.  Arrived at  Algiers about sunrise.
