Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Lead widened during the night

Another calm mild day. Min. during night -32° in morning rising to -15° + later to -8°.
    Lead widened during night more than at any other time but has remained quiet during the day.
    In evening Pooadloonah came to me whining he was sick + I packed him + Panikpah back for the land at once. Am done with those two.
    Rather hoped for M- + B- today but too late now.
    Today (3rd after full moon being max. range of spring tides) I hope movement of lead is at end.
