Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Getting ready for the northern trip

Thirty seven below this morning at seven oclock. It went down to forty and one half during the day, a little daylight shows in the morning but it is dark as usual the rest of the day and night. The stars shine just as bright day and night as they have all winter, everybody is getting ready for the Northern trip now. I am improving the cover's to the cookers by grooving to retard the flow of water (ice melters also).
