Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Lettering some copper plate


Five above this morning and has been about the same all day the sun has been fine and bright today. The Second is making sample kerosene stoves large and small from the Com. plans, and I am lettering some copper plate, first drawing and then pricking the outlines with a centre punch so as to leave a record of the work the Com. has accomplished at Cape Columbia. And also expect to leave a tablet here in Memory of Marvin. The Bar. is 30.43 tonight.
