Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Ice comparatively quiet

Up at noon. A beautiful day and ice comparatively quiet. Wind is still from north to north-west. Probably no more trouble until tonight on the flood tide. Have been reading almost all the afternoon.
    Tonight there is a light breeze from the southward. The ice, even on the flood tide, is drifting rapidly to the north giving us a lead to Cape Union. But the wind is gradually decreasing so the channels are that we shall not leave here tonight.
