Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

A soft trail all day

A soft trail all day long. Took on pemmican, oil and biscuit at Cape Colan. We now have the maximum load about 500 lbs. Came on about 5 miles beyond Cape Colan and built two igloos. For a while this afternoon we could see dogs teams ahead of us. This must be the Doctor's party who left ship two days ahead of us, probably held up by wind and drift.
