Page 3 Undated

Here is the next installment of the diary.  We are still only at the very beginning and there is no actual writing of H. S. Archer.  It seems to be lists he kept of clothing being issued to individuals in the 32nd Mississippi Regiment.   Just as a note, I have utilized Fireworks to attempt to enhance the quality of the image by either lightening, darkening, or "blurring" to help with the transcription.  I have not done any altering to any of the text in any way.
