July 191881: …we loaded some stores left here by the U.S. Gullnare last year. [Could easily have included books from the Howgate Expedition, those so stamped in the Arctic Collection found by Peary in 1898.]

Sept. 16th, very funny passage on three men in sleeping bag meant for two.

Oct 9, 16, 23, Nov 20, 24, Dec 25, Feb 19, 1882—notes sermons by Greely, the last with “prayers for those who are travelling.”

Nov. 23, notes first appearance of Arctic Moon.
