Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

I wish we would go into Boston

,

We had a good sailing breeze all night and rain made 8 ½ knots most of the time and not rough any, got here at Eagle Island at 12.30 P.M. still raining hard. The Com. has been onboard but I dont know weather [sic] he is going to N.Y. with us or not.
We are to land some things for the Com, McMillan [sic] and the Cook, I wish we would go into Boston for a day I would send a lot of my stuff home. The Bar. is 29.98.
