Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

The moon is growing small

3º below this morning, but is growing cold tonight. There is quite a breeze and the snow is drifting come tonight. The mate told me that large berg was 240 feet wide bout 300 feet long. That is about the thickest peice [sic] I have seen here. The most of it is 30 to 40 feet thick once in awhile we see some that is 60 feet thick. It is growing dark so we have to keep a lamp burning about all day. The moon is growing small and going away. The waterback in the cooks stove has burst again and are going to put a pipe in tomorrow.
