[Louisiana] Sunday. Had no military orders to do. Services in forenoon. Sermon by Mr. Wardwell—a good faithful, practical discourse. Weather cloudy & warm. This evening it is raining again. Prayer meeting at Quartermaster tent. I have not attended. The Col. told me today that we are to turn over our tents & be furnished with “shelter tents”. This looks like a move into the field. It may come within a few days. It is said that the Brigadier, General Dwight, has arrived & is to take command—hope he is a different man from Col. Wilson.
