on a Court- Martial and at Bunker Hill - four miles
off - but hes here still, has transportation in an Ambulance
with Capt. Lee. He has had considerable trouble - was promoted
into a Bat. against the wishes of everyone in it, but has
worn well & is very much liked by all its members
now excep Capt. Templeton - a worthless fellow - a disgrace
to the service - & one or two of his "set" - Templeton has
tried every way to get rid of him - by transfer etc - but
Austin wont go - & I admire his spunk.

We are kept busy in spite of the cold weather - Yesterday

mean drill - The Major was in command - & had
"Charged front forward on first Company" - the men
rubbing their ears & taking no interest in the drill,
when Col. Warner came out & ordered us home - "too cold
to drill" - A Battalion means from two companies to [?] - & a
Battalion drill is a drill of two or more companies in regimental
