[written above date] Stanton General Hospital Washington D.C.
A beautiful sunny day. great numbers wandering their way to their different houses of Worship. Did not go out of the Hospital
all day. As I was feeling too unwell. war news good. Finished reading a beautiful story called "Rosendale" a story of self-denial.
In the forenoon wrote to Prof. Northrop and in the Evening a long letter to my deer and loved friend Judith-U. Also read several
poems of Tennysons. No letters received. Have felt-quite unwell. much pain in my wound. Many sick and wounded brought to the
City from City Point.
