Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Cloudy most all day

Eleven above this morning, and went to one below during the day, it has been cloudy most all day, and the boys have been drilling sledge shoe's [sic] on deck about all day. Two Eskimos left last night for Greenland to take the sounding gear to the party up there. Cody the sailor got here from Wrangle bay last night about 9.30 with ten hare and six other Eskimo men and women. Came from Black Cliff bay without any game, they ate what they got and that wasn't very much lately. They had plenty of hard bread and tea and a few hare. The Barometer is 30.35 tonight rising.
