They finished coaling today, 210 tons by the number of tubs taken. There is 20 or 25 tons of whale meat coming onboard, have the most of it on now 5. P.M. It has been snowing and raining all day a very disagreeable day. The Capt. and natives got back last night with about 30 more dogs and the natives took them over to the little Island to stay until we are ready to go. The wind is South East today and holds the ice fast yet. It needs a good No. East wind to start it coming down.
