Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Continuation of the storm

Continuation of the storm though the temperature is a little higher. The R – has recovered entirely from last night’s pressure, + though aground forward + aft at low tide, is now on an even keel.
    In the afternoon Keshingwah came in + reported they had killed a bear in Dumb-bell Bay but had been unable to reach it owning to the thinness of the ice.
    Sent 3 Eskimos with 2 sledges + teams + a kayak back with him, to bring the bear in whole.
    K – reports the wind blowing much harder where they were, + all along than it is at the ship.
