They will be gone three or four days

Twenty-three teams went to Porter bay this morning with pemmican [sic], and are to fleet the rest of the provisions from Cape Richardson up to there, they will be gone three or four days. Four of my men have been at work with the sailors today and two drilling sledge shoes, the Second has been soldering up some holes in kerosene cans for the hunting parties to take oil in the field. Mc.Millan & Murphy one of the sailors have been sick in bed for two weeks but are gaining a little now. McMillan sat up a little while today.
