Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Serious leakage

Since Tuesday noon it has been very satisfactory weather, clear, calm, temp. averaging pretty close to -40°.
    This weather following the n-ly gale of Sunday, Monday + Tuesday which presumably packed the ice down against the land should tend to current + hold it there.
    At 7-P.M. Captain returned with his men. His Sunday march was a disagreeable one (10 hours to Richardson against the wind).
    The Dr. + Borup arrived Sail Harbor Thursday morning just as he was leaving. (2 marches from the ship). He tells me of serious leakage of the alcohol.
    Full moon yesterday.
