Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

Experiencing another miserable day

We are experiencing another miserable day, rain, wind and heavy sea. At dinner we could not keep a thing on the table, everything on the move. The result of a heavy cross sea from the south-ward. To the south of us there must have been quite a heavy gale of wind.
    It is impossible to sit up with any comfort so will go to bed early and talk over the good times we have had sledging with George.
