Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Lots of floating ice


We arrived at Turnivik last night at 8.30. That is where the Capts. Father is fishing. His two Brothers and Father were onboard besides lots of other men. We got a head wind & rain just before we got in there and it blew all night and is quite rough today with head wind. Left there at 4. A.M. The Erik went in and left with us. She goes along about the same as we do sometimes ahead and sometimes behind, we are running through lots of floating ice today which we didnt see last time as we were over further to the East, and were a week later.
