Diary of 1st Sergeant John L. Ransom: May 7, 1864

A squad of Yankees taken outside to-day on parole of honor, for the purpose of baking meal into bread George Hendryx is one of the number, and he will have enough to eat after this, which I am glad of. I could have gotten outside if I so chose, but curious to write down I don't want to go. George says he will try and send in something for us to eat, and I know he will, for a truer hearted fellow never lived.
