Monday, March 27, 1865   Am not well   lay on my bunk most all day   we get orders to fix up camp as we will probably remain in our present position during our stay at Goldsboro   I am rather to much under the weather to fix up much to day   many of the boys are busy writing   I wish I was well enough to write but shall have to defer writing till I feel better which I guess will be soon as I got 5 large pills and 2 large quinine Powders this morning   I don’t like our camp much as it is rather low and will be quite wet if it rains much
