Diary of Sergeant Major Luman Harris Tenney: May 22, 1863

After breakfast sleeked up. Charlie blacked my boots. Bill shaved me. Played two games of chess with Capt. N. Even games. Wrote to Sarah. Received two papers. Very warm day —  uncomfortable. Major Purington's horse died. Seems to have very bad luck.
