Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Up to his knees

Thirty three below this morning, and a little breeze but clear and fine all the stars in the heavens shining, and the moon arose about three this afternoon so it is quite light now but will soon swing around behind the hills. The Dr. with three natives left this afternoon for Clements Markham Inlet to try their luck again for Musk oxen. And Borup left with four natives for the Lake Hazen region to try it again they think perhaps the Musk oxen may wander around that way again if there are any in the country. The Capt. said there was fine feed for them in some places the goose was up to his knees and lots of it, in a kind of a bog. And no snow when he was there.
