arrived at Gettysburg at G:45 a. m.
Tuesday morning, everybody in good
spirits' but some tired after the long
ride. We found that the advance
detail had everything in good shape
for the company when they arrived.
The first thing in order was for the
men to get settled in their tents and
then breakfast was ready for them.
After mess the company was taken
out for a drill in the pitching of
shelter tents. In the afternoon there
was an hour of company drill and

Inspection of companies In their com

marched away from camp, carrying
blanket rolls. We marched about a
mile into the country and turned In
to a large field and were Inspected
in the erection and striking of shel

was taken from our company. Capt.
Kelley was officer of the day and

Private Bodie was the only rookie
who didn't go through the paddling
machine; he didn't have the nerve.
Tho camp lies about one mile from
t'.e town of Gettysburg and tho
roads are very muddy from tho rain
of yesterday and tho consequence is
that visitors to the camp aro more
scarce this year than over before.
The health of tho company is very
good. Tho water down hero Is not
good. If you want a good drink you
have to go to some farm house
where there Is a spring.
