Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Onshore at Eagle Island to supper

We arrived at Eagle Island at [unknown] P.M. yesterday and left at 10 P.M. for Sandy Hook. It blew hard for a while in the night and has been rough ever since, and very rough last night smashed one of our skylights, the wind blew it over. Capt., Dr. McMillan, Borup, Mat, Mr. Sayre and myself were all onshore at Eagle Island to supper; hot roast lamb, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, strawberry preserves and peaches, two kinds of cake & doughnuts and some nice biscuit too. The Bar is 29.82 falling.
