January 29, 1862

2d Lieut. Elliot:
Diary:
     January 29-Wednesday
     Very pleasant to day and quite warm very different from our weather at home. one can hardly realize that there is at the present time about 18 inches of snow on the ground there.
     We have to day our first Batt-allion drill this afternoon the first one since we arrived here and a very good one con-sidering the difficulties under which we have to labor.
     I hope we shall get sometime to our destination and know what we are here for and what authority we are to have to act under.
