Diary of Alexander G. Downing: Sunday, December 29, 1861

I am staying at the tavern on account of having taken a severe cold. As we are here without the regimental surgeon, the captain marked me “not fit for duty.”  The landlady is very kind to me and is helping break up my cold. The company had to clean up this morning for inspection.
