Twenty two below this morning and not much wind. It has been pretty fair day but dark, the moon didnt rise until past two this afternoon and then it was cloudy so we couldnt see it until about seven tonight. The travelers wont have it very good if it keeps on the way it has since the moon came, although it seems very fine tonight. The ice was doing some fancy squeeking [sic] from four until about ten oclock this morning, it sounded as if it was pretty close by. The tide has a rise and fall of about two feet now.
