Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

A succession of breakages

Owing to an accident to one of the sledges I thought it advisable to go into camp off the Black Horn Cliffs after a march of only 5 hours.
    We seem to be very unfortunate in the breaking of our sledges. It has been a succession of breakages since leaving ship. As the loads are very heavy and walrus line nearly gone, it is beginning to assume a serious aspect!
    Thermometer 15 below tonight.
