Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Forever on the watch

Snowing hard all day and blowing from the south'ard. Yesterday we make rapid progress south to Latitude 82° 8'. This wind may drive us back to Cape Union.
    George beat the Huskies at their own game today getting two seals right out from under their nose, so to speak, as they seem to be forever on the watch, generally preventing any of us from getting a shot. The first one sank before the kyack could reach it but the second we shall feed on tomorrow.
