[Louisiana] Saturday. Pretty languid and weak today, though not sick. I find that I have little physical strength here in this country, even when I feel otherwise pretty well, and think the same is true of nearly all in our Reg. The men were busy all the forenoon washing clothes, & this afternoon have been clearing up a parade ground in part of the encampment. The weather is mild this evening & the men are feeling pretty well. I think the health of the Reg. is improving.
