31 March, 1911

The sea ice is 6 - 8 inches in places, still not thick enough for us to walk across.

We are good for another week in pretty well every commodity and shall then have to reduce luxuries. But we have plenty of seal meat, blubber, and biscuit, andcan therefore remain for a much longer period if needs be.

Meanwhile the days are growing shorter and the weather colder.

If only we'd been able to set camp in this vicinity and avoided the necessity of a journey over sea ice! It seems as if Fortune is set against us at every turn.
