June 10, 1862

2d Lieut. Elliot:
Diary:
     June 10-Tuesday
     Hot day again as usual almost scorchs a man as he walks through the streets.
     Went over to Quarters to see Captain the first time I have been over since I went to Hospital. found Captain down on his back and quite sick.
     Wrote home to Jane about poor Harvey Wood’s death and enclosed a letter from the Doctor to his Father. His folks will feel this blow badly.
     Sergeant Major under arrest for insulting language to Adjutant.
     Adjutant returned to duty to day. I would I could have returned to duty with him but must needs wait a few days longer.

Corpl. B. B. Smith:
Diary:
      Tuesday 10
     Another fine day.  we were called out
     Last night about 1 Ock by the long
     Roll.  after we got in a line it did
     Not amount to anything.  There was
     A Steam Frigate & Side wheel Steamer
     Come up the river last night.  we
     Expect some fun soon up the river.
     There is a report that the Col of the Wis
     Regt was shot last night By the guerillas
