Jens Dahle and James Eberhart are both prisoners in Confederate prison at Salisbury, North Carolina. James writes in his diary:
It has been a Clear day with Sun Shine and warmer. Done some bugging today. hope to sleep better. 28 hauled out today.” — James Eberhart
Obviously, vermin in the clothes, hair and bedding, such as it was, was a continual problem. James is picking out the bugs–“bugging.” But, the weather is better.2
What I have done since the last posting: I am getting prepped for the my trip to Salt Lake City. I have some personal research to do (tax records 1750-1817 for Sweden) and packing to do.
