December 30. 1777
Clothing was handed out to those of our company in need. I gratefully received a hat which I have been in want for these past months. Some of the men and boys were nearly naked having traded away their clothing for food. Those of us who are more industrious have been able to earn some extra money thereby keeping ourselves fed without jeopardizing the clothes on our bodies. We look forward to the coming New Year and the promise of a swift return to our homes.
