David L Day–My diary of rambles with the 25th Mass

Jan. 14. Up to this date about 200 of our men have reenlisted, and today the first detachment left for home on their thirty days’ furlough. They were accompanied by three of the officers, one of whom was Lieut. McCarter of company B. I hope they will have a good time and enjoy themselves. Orders keep coming from headquarters, at the fort to hurry up enlistments and some of them are of a rather threatening character.
