Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Haven't moved since

We got two little runs during the night and this forenoon. The seizing came off the wheel rope and we had to stop and fix it and [fog] came in thick and we havn't moved since.  It snowed about all night and is snowing now. They think they saw Cape Sabine and Cairn point before it got thick and thought it wasnt more than 3 miles to open water but cant tell. The ice seems well broken up where we are but it is packed in thick. The Bar. is 29.58 now.
