Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Tidal observations

Thirty five below this morning, at seven and clear, but came up cloudy and snowed a little the rest of the day, and is frosty now. Marvin and Wiseman with three natives arr. about six tonight from taking tidal observations on the Greenland side. They had over three feet range in tides over there. I suppose that is what makes the ice brake [sic] off so often over there. He said the tide acted funny over there one day it would be quite high the next low and then high again. They didnt see a thing in the shape of game.
