Diary of 1st Lieutenant Lemuel A. Abbott: Wednesday, August 31, 1864

Pleasant and warm; got our muster and pay rolls this morning; completed two; not much skirmishing to-day; paper states that probably General McClellan will be the Democratic nominee for president; got a mail but no letter for me.
