Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Doing everything he possibly can

Have been getting my things together for the trip to Clements Markham Inlet. Commander is doing everything he possibly can to [make] my trip a comfortable one – has had made a nanook sleeping bag, has lent me his fox skin kooletah, his medicine case, thermometer, in fact his complete outfit. If I do not enjoy the trip it will be of no fault or oversight on his part.
