Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Saw a star cross behind the moon

We had a nice breeze all night and came along fine and should make Cape Chudleigh [Chidley] at 6 oclock tonight, havnt got the sun very often and were not as far along as we thought we were, have coal for about 3 more days and it will take about 2 ½ to Turnivik [Turnavik] where the Capts father is. They have 30 or 40 tons for us so they told us onboard the Schr. The Bar. is 29.78 now. We saw a star cross behind the moon last night. I saw once before when I was on the Creedmoor at Bar Harbor.
