War diary and letters of Stephen Minot Weld

May 30.— I got up this morning at 5.30, as we were to have a review of the corps at 7 o’clock by General Reynolds. The ground selected was near Colonel Shaler’s headquarters, and considering the wind and dust and rain, I think the review passed off well. There were about 8000 men out. I rode over to see Captain Starr in the afternoon. Also went to Engineer Brigade, and had my horse shod. Saw Van B., etc. Captains Clapp and Strang came over here in the evening.
