Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Welcome news

Temp. during night -55° when starting -53°, + when we camped -59°.
    Good going + a good march (12m.).
    While making camp advance sledge from Marvin came in, (Sigloo) with a letter, bringing the welcome news that M- camped last night at our camp of the 11th (where Sigloo left him) that he will camp tonight at our camp of the 12th, + be here tomorrow night, bringing in much needed alcohol + oil.
    This enables me to start Henson + his division off in the morning pioneering, while the rest of us remain till M- comes in.
