Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

No wind

Two below this morning, and no wind. Borup one sailor and one Eskimo went up the trail today were gone about five hours, didnt find it drifted any. But I expect they will tomorrow, as the wind is breezing up tonight. I was down to the little pond where they get water, about a mile from here, on my snowshoes. Marvin is having a hole cut and an Igloo built over it so as to take measurements of the tides. The Eskimos are building a snow wall around the ships house, on skylight etc.
