Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

House cleaning today

A fine bright day. Wind moderate + steady in morning + I obtained a series of photos of sail model. Am more + more pleased with the rig, shape, + arrangement of sails.  In full sailing trim (square sail + top sails on mainmast) the model looks especially trim + effective. Nor do I recall ever having seen a similar rig.
    Eskimos house cleaning today. Everything taken out of their places, walls, ceiling, + floor, scrubbed, disinfected, + whitewashed.
    Karko off again this evening to Black Cliffs B. Lead open at Sheridan again this afternoon.
