Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Found my old friends

Have been catching dogs for the Commander today. Hunted for and found my old friends “Left-over”, “Leslie”, “Teddy”, “Wolf” and the Black bitch. They all seemed glad to see me and jumped upon my breast. Today is the “Winter-Solstice”, the day when the sun reaches its most southern declination. A very goof twilight showing that the light never wholly deserts us in this section.
