Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

They blew the horn and dipped the flag

We had quite a breeze of head wind all night, the wind is ahead now but not strong and it is quite clear, sun shines part of the time we passed a Boston fisherman this forenoon (The Vanasa) they blew the horn and dipped the flag cheered etc. When they saw us they put about and ran at right angle of their course to salute us. We are going better today made 7 ½ knots all my watch. The Bar. Is 29.93 rose very little.
