Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

300 little auks

The boys got 14 hare and one duck yesterday. Capt. Carpenter McMillan Borup & two Eskimos got 4 walrus and 92 ducks on their hunting trip, so we have lots of everything. The women catch a lot of little auks. Blew of the starboard boiler this afternoon. The cook roasted 300 little auks for dinner today.
