2d Lieut. Elliot:
     March 29-Saturday
     Still fine weather, very warm.
     Tomorrow is our Inspection by Brigadir Gen’l Shepley the first appearance of his honor since taking command of the Brigade.
     Drill in the morning as usual. Battalion and Company ditto.
     At noon the heat was almost intolerable. it seems as if it would burn though our clothes.
     Capt Brown expecting orders every moment for a man. Capt Shipley getting along finely. Lieut Louvrin getting tired almost of waiting for transportation home.

Corpl. B. B. Smith:
