Twenty one above this morning and has been about the same all day, it snowed all night and part of the day, it melts on deck but not on the old snow the bear [sic] spots onshore are all covered up, and it looks more like Winter than Summer. The sun has broke through a few times today but dont amount to much. Three Eskimo men and one woman went away hunting last night and another man and his wife and boy go tonight they are all to be gone ten or fifteen days. The Bar. is 29.83 tonight rising again but colder. The moon fulls today so we hope for better weather.
