Mon - Tues. Apr. 19-20
Still fine weather, still on the schedule. Light snow fell while in camp
but ceased before we left. Started 5.30 p.m. 6th igloos at 11.45. Lunch
here. 5th igloos 7.- a.m. Am suffering tonight from what has every
symptom of an attack of quinsy.1
The land has come up surprisingly in
this march, showing our estimate (24' for both marches) to be about
right. A difference of 24 naut. miles makes a distinct difference in the
apparent altitude of a coast or mountain.
