Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

We are certainly living high

,

Three more hare today, we are certainly living high as there is nothing better than hare meat. Koodlookto saw two seals today, wounded one big ìsquare flipperî but he got away.
    Our Inuit presents a great picture today. Dressed up in a military coat, the long tails fluttering in the breeze, and Kabloonah pants, boots and hat, he struts around with his hand in his pocket smoking his pipe and looking as if he owned Fort Conger and all the surrounding country.
