23 October, 1910

I don't know why people make such a fuss about what I said. 

It only stands to reason that when one engages the elements on ventures such as this, fate and providence have a vital role to play. One cannot determine the weather, say. One cannot foresee events beyond one's ken. One has to take into account the idea that fortune is on your side just as one takes into account provisions lists and sledging teams and geography and all the rest of it. And I see no reason why fortune should not smile upon us. 

And if she doesn't, well, there's nothing on earth that can be done for it. If luck isn't on your side, you're done for. 

I really miss a good curry. I don't suppose Bowers has packed Curry powder.
