Thirty five below this morning at seven oclock and has been down to forty two below but is going up again got to thirty eight below. It has been fine today clear and quite light with nearly a full moon it fulls tomorrow. The boys have been digging the ice away around the stern today so it wont bear too heavy on the propeller when the tide goes down. It is cracked up some around the stern and makes aloud noise once in a while when the tide is going down and it cracks. Those that are out are having a fine day to travel.
