Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Had a gymnasium class

Not much to write about day by day. Our life is about the same from one day to the next.
    Captain got away Monday night for Hecla. Borup and the Doctor left yesterday for Colan and the Inlet for a ten day trip. We are having a beautiful moon now, perfect weather, temperature at -43 tonight. Have had a gymnasium class in tumbling on the ice tonight for boys. Altho our mittens froze solid still we were too warm for comfort. It is getting lighter every day. Am trying some moonlight pictures of the Roosevelt exposing films about four hours.
