Sunday 12th.—Remained still to-day. 6 P. M., drew four days’ rations to-day; flour and pickled pork. Wagons have not come with the cooking vessels; our mess had half-gallon bucket and one copper plate; fried out grease in the plate and made up dough in the half-gallon bucket; baked part in the ashes and part wound round sticks and held over hot coals. Had rations cooked by 11 P. M. Wagons and sick are being sent away; look for fighting soon.
