Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

We had quite a job

We are up in Inglefield gulf today distributing natives and looking for Walrus. One of the firemen in opening a valve unscrewed the head out of it this morning and it blew out so we had quite a hot job getting it in again. Were over an hour before we could get the steam off so to get at it. The Com. told me the natives said Dr. Cook went down past to Upernovik this spring. When he got back to Etah he didnt have any dogs, so I think he had to carry his provisions. One or two natives went down to Upernovik with him. The 29.85 going down again.
