Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Getting information

Wind shifted during the night, swinging over stern inshore soon after midnight + catching our heel on the rocks where we hung until about noon today, then went in against the rocks, ran out a long gangway + got the coal on board. Got away from rocks + anchored in cove about nine o'clock. Captain Sam Bartlett told the Bosun he had landed 60 tons. Captain Robert + the Chief think there are but 45.
    Have been busy myself paying off my people, + getting information in re Cook + other matters of the past year here.
    One year ago today we left for the north.
