Diary of Luman Harris Tenney: Sunday, September 28, 1862

In the morning went to the creek and washed. 3rd Indian regiment came in. Chilly and misty. In the P. M. Archie, Chamberlain and I went out to hunt peaches. Went three miles, found no peaches. Plenty of good wild grapes. Got some milk from a minister. Written on house “Thou shalt not steal”— pretty lady. Read “Virginia” in Macaulay's Essays. In the evening Chamberlain read Horatius to us — lying under the oak and the fly cover of our tent. Enjoyed it.
