Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

We sailed from Sydney


The Commander and family left for home today by train. We sailed from Sydney on the same day for Eagle Island, Maine, the summer home of the Commander and his family. Here we landed his and my personal equipment, since Eagle Island is in Casco Bay and not far from my home in Freeport.
