[written above date] Stanton Gen'l Hospital Washington D.C.
A beautiful but cold day. But little of any account to do in the office. War news good but rather dull. In the afternoon received
a letter from my Cousin Mrs. [Phenise] [Millige]. Took a short walk and visited my friend Mr. Moon.
In the evening enjoyed a few hours in the society of some [heady] friends who live near.
Returned to the hospital and wrote an answer to my Cousin's letter. Have felt quite well today.
