Was routed out this morning by Commander's voice asking if I wanted to take a scout. I did and am just back at 10 o'clock at night. After a trip of about 35 miles, a dash down with empty sledges after Kiotah's load and all the provisions left at No. 3 by George. Left there at 4 o'clock. I told the sledges to go on, that I would walk. Before I got here I had enough. The lining of my bear skins wore through causing my legs to chafe badly. But a rest here for Marvin will fix them all right.
