MONDAY, JANUARY 22nd

Nice day, frost, and clear. There have been inter-Battalion contests going on for the last ten days, in (1) football, (2) team running, (3) bayonet fighting, and (4) boxing. The finals in 2 and 3 were run off today. Unfortunately we lost against 12th in 1st round of footer. However, in this morning’s show the Battalion showed up splendidly. We move from here Friday or Saturday. Am going to prospect tomorrow. I have managed for us to work with the 12th by special request of the 12th and 9th. Sergt. Johnston was in charge of the running team, and was splendid. They all finished together as if on parade, and did the 3 miles in 27 minutes.
