Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Found a big piece of pork

Twenty two above this morning and has been about the same all day. It snowed all night and all day, there is about five inches of new snow on the ground now and still snowing. The boys were taking an old oil barrel out of the after hold down in the shaft ally today and found a big peice [sic] of pork in it and it smelled so they had to take it out and throw it overboard and then we had to sprinkle carbolic acid around. The Bar. is 29.64 tonight falling fast.
