March - 10 - I drove the carry-all with the major - to the opera - It was the opera "La Traviata" given by the San Carlos opera Company.

Mar -13- Last night a hurricane came up, blow the tent down and it was plenty rough - The storage tent was torn to shreds. What a night - We have a new one to-day which is a break as far as this Army is for the enlisted man
