Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Not Thawing

Thirty above this morning and has been about the same all day.  Cloudy most of the day, not thawing to amount to anything yet. I have finished up the stamping of the letters for the Northern Record, and Borup leaves right away to set it up on cape Columbia. And McMillan leaves tonight for Fort Conger with one sailor and one Eskimo to take the tidal observations for ten days. Two Eskimos are to go with Borup. One Eskimo came in this morning with one deer and a fawn he tried to keep the fawn alive but it died on the way to the ship. The Bar. is 29.67 tonight rising.
