Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Spring tides


Still thick, calm + warm (just above 0°).
    Spring tides running now + they have flooded the big igloo just completed yesterday by Marvin over his tide gauge hole. Am afraid it may collapse.
    Six more dogs condemned + expended today.
    The 2” broad runner sledge completed today. Wt. 79 lbs., length 12’, width 26”.
    Henson has been 10 days on this with a man to help him, + the cross bars made + shoes drilled.
