Diary entry Dated 06/05/64

Sun. June 5, 1864

For breakfast this morning had maize and molasses, bread & butter & coffee. For dinner boiled beef & butter & coffee. For supper bread & molasses & tea.

Mon. June 6, 1864

Everything as common. Nothing to write

Tues. June 7, 1864

The same as ever. Nothing done about my furlough yet.

Wed. June 8, 1864

The same as ever. More wounded brought in today from the White House. Our ward is full again.

(( This is the last of the entries in the diaries of WWV that I have. Gram (Gladys Hutton) says that at one time she had another diary for 1864 but that someone from the museum (in Watertown?) had asked to borrow it - I presume from the letters that WWV was home on furlough after Ett's letter dated June 9th and before his letter dated July 29.))
