Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Busy this week

A fine day. Clear + calm. Temp. -40°F.  The twilight rapidly increasing.  Today for first time a faint ruddy tinge under C. Rawson just before noon.
    Walked out to the lake water hole + could easily see the sledge tracks going + coming.
    Dog feeding day today + I increased the ration. It looks as if I should have walrus meat sufficient to last (alternate feeding) to the end of the month.
    Two or three more dogs have died of Piblockto. Busy this week on clothing, sounding lines, stores, repairs to sledges etc.
    During week also have finished up the work of deer photography.
