Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Over a ton of it

Thick with silting snow. Temp. a little lower (-11°). Fresh n-ly breeze at times during night. 
    Sent Pooadloonah + Sigloo to C. Richardson to break the trail + move some of the pemmican from Belknap to Richardson. Trying flash lights of bear + deer. Have also modelled [sic] a deer head + shoulders, to go with a wolf if we get one.
    The last of the whale meat was cut up + brought on board today. There is a little over a ton of it.
    A little blaze this morning about the galley smoke pipe.
