Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Going along pretty well

2. P.M. there is a nice breeze and they have the sails set and we are going along pretty well, we are all about sick today from the heat last night working down below but if it had happened in N.Y.  I dont think we could have stood it, for there were one hundred people prostrated in New York City the day we left.
