We went to the houses and got peaches, pies, water melons, and such melons, and good drinking water also some line apple cider. I and another fellow went to stroll around one day and went over to where the officers ate at a farmers house. He had some fine cider. There were guards there to keep- the boys out of the orchard. We went in to-the guard house and four of us drank a half gallon of cider. After awhile the officer of the day and officer of the guard came around, which was my 1st lieutenant and Capt. Parker of company, and they bought another gallon. I had all the cider 1 wanted for a while.

We are going to have a brigade review tonight. That means to stand two hours at attention for General Brooke to see us, and the old saying is: "I had a good place, but I left to hear the bugle call," "soapy, soapy, soap, without any beans," -'soapy, soapy, soap to make you lean." We didn't have any church last Sun day on account of rain. Chaplain Johnson said we were going to have a regimental Surday school. Chaplain Johnson is from Mapelton, Iowa, not very far from my old town. My com rade Gene Justice has been quite sick for the past week but 1s better now he is able to be arouDd. I am well myself and hope the boy in the 51st are the same at San Francisco. Gene Justice got a letter from Claude Brogden this noon said they were all well, but were tired of staying where they were, just like we are. We have plenty of rain here, it just poured down last night before we went out io drill so we did not have any drill which \ve were elad of. Yours truly, WM. J. SCOTT.
