Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Writing my second report

Dug through ice to determine thickness, one hole 44 inches, and other 46 ½ in. A quiet day nearly everyone sleeping or reading. After supper Charlie livened up things a bit by starting the graphaphone.
    Am writing my second report - trip to Cape Aldrich. Has been a stormy day, sky completely overcast, and windy, thermometer ranging from -25 to -35.
