Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

My infernal tooth

A beautiful day again, clear calm + warm, but I have had little enjoyment out of it because of my infernal tooth which the Dr. filled last evening + which has been steadily growing worse since, until I had to have him dig the filling out again this evening. It took about an hour to do this with a varied assortment of coarse tools.
    Coady got away again this evening with all the dogs + 7 Esks to bring in the remainder of the supplies at Porter Bay. Quarter deck washed off with soda today in effort to remove the whale meat smell.
    Henson starts on a 10' "Peary" sledge.
