Twenty one above this morning at seven oclock when the sun was shining on the thermometer and in one hour it went to one below and has been there about all day. Cody one of the sailors and three Eskimos have just left for Cape Columbia to bring back some of the provisions that were carried up there last fall the Com. is going to try and get them all back and those down the coast also. They didnt have such a seige [sic] this year on the ice and didnt loose any provisions so there is quite a lot to come back. That will be fine to have the pemmican as we haven't much fresh meat this year. The Bar. is 30.32 tonight going up again.
