Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Never hurt her any

Thirty two above this morning, and went down to Twenty seven and has been cloudy and raw all day, and the wind began to blow from the South West about 3. P.M. and is blowing quite a breeze now. Two of the Eskimos that went out the other night got in this morning at 3 oclock and said they didnt even see a hare track. A little girl about 5 years old fell down the main hatch on to the coal in the bottom between the beams and never hurt her any except a little spot on her forehead. When she fell they all ran to see if she was killed and she was standing up crying. A 3 year old boy fell down a couple of months ago and cracked his collar bone. Have seen a few geese fly over but no one has got any yet. The Boson was up over the hill without a gun last night and saw two geese and was firing rocks at them but they flew before he hit them. The Bar. is 29.58 and falling.
