Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

A little water in the boiler


Thirty three above this morning and has been about the same all day, and it has been snowing and the wind No. East light all day. We began to put in a little water in the boiler today but it isn't thawing any so we will have to wait awhile or else fill with salt water, but I guess we will have the boiler full by the time the ice leaves here by the looks of it now. The Bar. is 29.99 rising slowly. The tide Igloo overflowed yesterday and they just got it drained to take the tides tonight.
