Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Half way from Etah to Cape Sheridan

We got another start at 9 oclock last night and have been going ever since. It is now 1 P.M. The Com. just told me we were about half way from Etah to Cape Sheridan. We had it thick of fog in the night and couldnt tell where to run to get clear of the large floes and had to run south part of the time so that put us back as much as 20 miles. We are about off Raulings bay [sic] now. While I was eating dinner we came through about a half mile of ice quite close together but it is open again now.
