Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

We have run short of fresh meat

Seventeen below again this morning but went down to twenty two during the day, it has been fine though. Three of the boys went South this morning for a few days hunting two more with one Eskimo went out to Lake Hazen, one Eskimo went West. Two more Eskimos and two women went up to Black Cliff bay. I hope some of them will get something for we have run short of fresh meat, and there dont seem to be anything very close to the ship for game very few hare, and one dont see them very often only the tracks and can follow them a long ways without catching up they go a long ways to feed. The Bar. is 30.14 tonight.
