Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

I will try for a picture

,

We were off Disco Island this morning. At 8 oclock the wind went down last night and we made pretty good time and also so far today. There are quite a number of large icebergs floating around now, and I think I will try for a picture of one of them. We are going along about 5 miles off shore, cant see anything of the Erik yet.
