Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

My birthday

(My birthday) and I dont feel half as old as I look. Forty below this morning at seven oclock, but it is fine and clear and quite light but dark as any winter night at home now although the stars are shining bright. It was light enough this morning so we could only see two of the largest planets.
    The Capt. with three Eskimos left this morning for the trip north, to build Igloos collect the provisions and have things ready when the rest of the party get there, and then they all leave the land together, excepting the road maker who leaves a day ahead of the rest.
