Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Furious drift

Continuance of clear cold weather until this morning (the date I set a week ago for the Captain's departure) when it began to blow.
    Captain + 8 Esks. + sledges got away about 10 A.M. for Sail Harbor + C. Hecla.
    Late in afternoon began blowing harder (N.W.) with furious drift.
    I hope the Captain with his light sledges reached Richardson before the strength of the gale came on.
