Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Two good sized igloos

We left Cape Colan this afternoon at quarter of three after fitting ourselves out with biscuit and pemmican from the cache of four years ago. The trail across the Inlet is very easily seen at times and at times it is lost on the smooth ice over which we travel at a very rapid rate making Sail Harbor in 3 hours and 25 minutes. We find there plenty of pemmican, oil and biscuit left by Matt and Borup, also two good sized igloos. Stay a while here for lunch and push on for Porter Bay which we reach at 1.30 Wednesday A.M.
