Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Not very cold

The weather keeps about the same not very cold for this country. The air has been full of frost all day. The ice moved off a little just outside of us. There are some very heavy floes of old arctic ice where it has rafted up long ago and filled in smothe [sic] with snow. Should say it was as much as 60 feet high looks like little mountains.
