Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Tea, sugar and biscuits

I came on watch at 12 this morning. Slightly warmer, 25 – but wind about the same. Along toward night the temp. stood at 12 –, the barometer is at 28.90 very low, but the clouds are breaking away and wind going down. At four o’clock conditions were so favorable that I call boys from their visit to snow igloo and send tem up into Parr Bay for soundings, telling them they must get water before they come back.
    Ooblooyah, Pu-ad-loonah, and Sig-loo leave for Roosevelt about midnight. Fitted them out with tea, sugar, and biscuits to Sail Harbor.
