Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

We were well fixed

Wind set in again after midnight with great force + more to the S.W. + continued until noon with rain + at the first snow.
    With the chain cable on board again, + the anchor in good holding bottom, we were well fixed, much better in fact than if we had been in the Harbor of Etah.  
    This afternoon + evening we have obtained more walrus by sending out the boats from the ship, killing them in the water, + towing them in. This brings our score up to [31].
