At 4 in the morning we went round
again to see the see that all wsa right to
prevent any morning surprise the rest
of the time we were back in camp sound
asleep so that in my experience in
picketing there is nothing unpleasant but on
the contrary I have enjoyed it [muchly?]
for the novelty of it but I have an idea
that the part I took in it is not exactly
like shouldering a musket and standing
there my allotted time especialy on a cold
rainy dark night and I have no curiosity
that would lead me in that direction
The regiment was relived at ten oclock
and we are quietly in camp again
It was the expectation that we would be
relived Saturday noon but it seems that the
relieving divisions could not get here until
sometime Sunday and one days rations were
sent out to us and as the weather is very
pleasant and the fresh pure air is invigorating
and we are satisfied to remain
Sunday evening April 5th
This morning was one of the finest of the far
famed "sunny south" the air was warm
with a soft gentle breeze just the day for a
stroll or to indulge in a day dream of home
