Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Drawing necklaces

Have been drawing necklaces for the Commander today. We have a piblockto victim about every day. One woman ran out on the ice tonight with not a thing on. The women caught her, laid her on a musk ox robe and held her down for half an hour. A streak of light shined out on the polar ice tonight up opposite Cape Sheridan presenting a very peculiar effect, almost like a search light.
