Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

A fine white fox

A perfect Spring day, clear, calm, warm.
    6 cases biscuit brought in from the Black Cape cache today.
    Last night a fine white fox came off to the ship + attempted to come on board. He was killed by one of the Eskimos. They tell me the fox was "piblockto" just like the dogs; + that in the Whale Sound region they often go mad the same way, + sometimes attempt to come into the igloos.
    The mate engaged in putting sample cases of provisions into the lazarette today.
