Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

New Year

A cold day for our hunting parties 41 below. Bright moonlight. Paddy takes my watch tonight giving me an opportunity to write my reports on the Clements Markham Inlet trip and the Cape Aldrich trip.
    At midnight the boys fired a salute with shot guns and rang our bell regularly in welcome to the New Year, one which will mean much to us if Commander reaches 90.
