Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

80 tins of biscuits

Thirty four above this morning, but went down to twenty one above during the day. Two Eskimos went to Lincoln bay yesterday morning and got back at 9.30 last night with a load of provisions from the cache we made there last fall. The Com. is going to have both caches down that way and those up along as far as Cape Columbia brought to the ship before the water begins to run. There are about 80 tins of biscuits up Cape Columbia way and lots of pemmican and some kerosene. I am still stamping letters on copper plate. The Bar. is 30.25 tonight. Has been higher, falling now.
