Fifteen below this morning at seven oclock and has been between eleven and seventeen below all day. It has been very thick all day, and the moon is shining out through the mist now like the sun through the fog. There has been a frost falling all day but it doesn't increase the snow any. The Second is making tin boxes for package tea and will solder it up tight for the northern trip. So it wont get wet if the sledge should get in the water.
