Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

The kids make so much noise

Thirty two below this morning, and the air was full of frost, the rigging is all covered with it. Borup has just been out and taken a flashlight picture of some of the Natives that are going out in a day or two. Panikpah one of the Eskimo’s has built a snow Igloo onshore to sleep in nights, he says the kids make so much noise in the forecastle he cant sleep there. I think they gave the last of the fish to the dogs today. They mix it with whale meat. I just saw it on the next page where I had said it before. The boys get water yet, but they say it is getting low it is frozen nearly to the bottom of the spring.
