Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Nearly upright

It has been blowing a gale all day and widening the lead.
    The ship is so nearly upright that I knocked out the blocks from under one end of the table letting it down to a level.
    Four of the women are on the other side of the river unable to get across owing to the volume of water. Their husbands went up last night and threw food to them across the water. They are gone today. Probably back among the rocks to sleep.
