Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Didn't do a very brilliant thing

We had it calm all night and made between 7 & 8 knots all night but there is quite a breeze now pretty near ahead and we are not making more than 7 knots now. It has been cloudy ever since we left and rained some in the night. Whoever sent Mene the Eskimo up into this country didn't do a very brilliant thing for all he had was the clothes he stood in. They didnt give him a gun, traps, ammunitions, provisions or clothes and if the Schr. had got past us I guess he wouldnt had a thing. The Bar. is 29.56 and rising.
