Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Erik on our port bow

Another fine day. The night clear + calm. During forenoon + until middle of afternoon light breeze + a long swell from the west has rolled us a good deal. The wind swung to N.E. + the well subsides some.
    In morning Erik on our port bow, then full astern. Tonight she is farther behind than at any time.
    Stop for about 1.2 hour last night to repair feed pump.
    Work at stowing + overhauling continued today.
    Barom. + thermometer both steady.
