Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

We keep a light going all day

Not very cold today about zero I guess, I didn’t ask. Has been snowing part of the afternoon about 2 inches have fallen now I think. Could hear the ice running a little outside this morning. It is growing dark. We keep a light going all day in the room now. The men are building another box house on the shore close to the other two, so in case the ship should burn we would have a place to dog without waiting to build, even a snow Igloo. We have been making a tin kerosene stove today.
