Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Caught by the toes

Nineteen above this morning. Went up to Thirty during the day, but it has been cloudy and foggy all day and snowed some too. I have been stamping some more letters on Copper to day for the records at Cape Columbia. I have only two men in the Engineroom today. One is sick too in the tide Igloo, one on deck but we are most ready so we dont have to hurry any. Cody and the nightwatchman Murphy went out this morning hunting, Cody found a fox in his trap caught by the toes and brought him in alive, he is very ugly will snap at anyone that goes within 3 or 4 feet of him. That is all they saw. They said the new snow is most up to oneís knees. The Bar. is 29.63 tonight, the same since morning.
