Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Not cold at all

When we awoke this morning the Erik was far out a sea going outside of the "Bull Dog" rocks. Have been at work nearly all day piling up condensed milk cases. After we were through George and I went aft and had a good bath, finishing up by throwing buckets of salt water at each other, not cold at all altho there are about thirty ice bergs in sight. About seven o'clock this evening we had a squall off the land. Had some bother getting down sails as ropes were stiff. Have had everything on today.
    Raining and blowing now from North East. The Erik far astern.
