Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Thanksgiving in Grant Land

Twenty eight below this morning, quite dark but the sky is full of stars as many as one would see on a starry night at home, they look cold though and twinkle too. We had mince pie, rice soup, macarronie [sic] & cheese and canned hash today for dinner. I was just out on deck and could hear the ice grinding and squeeking [sic] outside, off the Cape, it sounds as though it was right alongside. The Eskimos had a musk ox dinner.
