February 2, 1863

[Louisiana] Monday.  Rainy all the forenoon—the Reg. inspection postponed on account of the weather.  Was engaged in making up my quarterly return of Ordnance & Ordnance Stores.  In afternoon Lt. Jerrard took the Company our for skirmish drill.  This evening I went down to the tent of the Adjutant of the 6th N.Y. & got some information on the subject of making Clothing & Ordnance returns, & on other matters pertaining to the keeping of Company accounts.  Found the Adjutant (Francis) a very pleasant & accommodating fellow.  Did not attend the prayer meeting on account of the necessity of making up my returns as soon as possible.  This evening the wind is rising, & appearances indicate another cold snap.  Finished a 12 page letter to Pamelia last night, & mailed it this morning.  Also printed a little letter to Ikie, & enclosed it in Pamelia’s.
