 +...The next morning, Sept. 18th, 1862, we marched all day toward Annapolis and at night encamped without any supper in a clover field and it rained nearly all night. I wished myself at home again.
 +
 +Next morning about sunrise we started on the march again, Sept. 19th, marched all day until sundown without anything to eat except some half ripe peaches. I stopped at a farm house and bought a quart of milk of a lady and gave her a 3c postage stamp for it as 
 +I had no change. I drank the milk and felt quite strong again. We
 +lay down by the side of the road that night.
 +
 +Next morning, September 20th, we got a slice of bacon and two hard tack apiece; that was all that we had for breakfast, dinner and supper.
 +
 +That night brought us to a village called Ellicott city in Maryland. ​
 +
 +September 21st, got some rations from the quartermaster and marched to a place called the Relay House at the Junction of the Baltimore and Washington railroad. Camped beside the road all night. September 22nd marched to Annapolis Junction without rations. Here we drew some hard tack. Left there about 4 oclock in afternoon of the 22nd and marched until sundown, Encamped in a field near a 50-acre tobacco field and such an abundance of peaches I never saw before, but were not ripe enough to eat
 +
 +September 25rd started for Annapolis about 15 miles away. Arrived at parole camp in the woods about 5 oclock; here we got all we wanted to eat and lay down and slept until morning on the grass in the woods. ...
