Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Christmas Candy


When the time came for the Roosevelt to sail, we had absolutely everything which we needed in the way of equipment, including boxes of Christmas candy, one for every man on board, a gift of Mrs. Peary. -- From Robert E. Peary's The North Pole, 1910.
