Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Ran slow all night


Left Antels Harbor at 8.30 last night and arrived here at Hawks Harbor at 7.30 this morning. Ran slow all night so as to have daylight to come in with. The Erik is here. She is to take the whale meat here, we are not taking any on here. There are a number of Snowbanks along the shores here also. The fishermen here say they are not getting many fish here. Mr. Whitney and his party are up the bay gunning. The Yacht Wakiva was in here awhile this morning and a party from her were onboard, they are going up into Hudson bay apiece if they can get past the ice. The Capt. told me they were up to Spitzbergen last summer went up to 78.20 No. Latitude.
