ToDay is the Birthday of

Rained a little this afternoon. Wind No.

Spoke to Mrs. H about my vacation.

Gave the hummingbirds nest to Martha, it was on a stand.

Eleanor gave me ride over to town. I got a haircut and went out to the Armory and with the rest of the company up to the Legion Camp at West Pond for weekend maneuvers.

I went on as Corp of the guard from 10-30 pm to 12-30 am Sun. Rearguards were Souza, Perry, and Hamblin.

So cold tonight the men had to wear their green blouses.

West Pond is very low, looks to be little over half his normal size.

A lot of the men came in to the camp off and on all night.

We had to sleep on cot springs without any mattresses.
