Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Had a good breeze after us

We stopped last night at 12 oclock on account of the heavy ice. We struck it a few times and it made her tremble. One would think it was coming right through there was quite a sea and it would rise up and come against us pretty hard. We got under way again at 4 oclock this morning and have had a good breeze after us ever since. No. East and foggy and quite a sea running now. We are about off Cape Chudleigh [Chidley] now. Saw a few large icebergs today. The Bar. is 29.46 been down to 29.33 this morning.
