Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Variable temperatures today

So cold in igloo last night that I frosted both my heels. Have made a box for my feet and the oil stove and will endeavor to keep warm. Have had some variable temperatures today, thermometer rising 18° in an hour at another time dropping 12°. Boys have been to old camp today for boxes and biscuit. Wood is nearly gone. We have plenty of oil but am afraid our wicks will not last for the trip home.
