It snowed all night until about twelve oclock today the land was all covered with snow. Part of it has melted off now as the sun has been out for a couple of hours. There was quite a breeze from the No. east all night. The ice is moving back and forth with the tide but hasn't come in against us yet expect it will at any time as it is quite heavy. The Capt. with the Eskimos got back about 2.30 P.M. He said the Channel wasn't open yet but we might get into Lincoln bay if we were out of here, although there was a large floe against Cape Union. He thought that Wrangle bay was broken up some but not moved out any. If the wind is right I expect we will get out on the next new moon tides as they are the highest for this month. The Bar. is 29.85 tonight has gone up fast tonight.
