Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

full loaded sledges

Leave today about noon (1.15) for Greenland to carry provisions to Cape Morris Jesup for Commander in case he and his party are driven to the eastward.  
    Have six full loaded sledges, driven by Kiotah, Kudlookto, Inughito, Koola-tinah, Awah-tingah and Borup. We have planned to remain away from the ship for sixty or seventy days so it is necessary to load each sledge to the limit. Probably each sledge is carrying at least 600 lbs.
