Temp. this morning down to -12°. Thick + a little snow falling. Blowing fresh from N.W. the early part of the night.
This wind seems to have completed the hardening of the snow; + the snowshoeing is much better, is in fact very good.
Borup, a sailor + an Eskimo went out on the trail again today nearly to Belknap + left a thermos bottle of hot coffee + one of gin for the Captain’s party.
