23 May, 1911

Shackleton left quite a bit of stuff here which we shall find useful - enough to afford provision for a party such as ours for about six or eight months if well administered. In case we need it. There's flour, Danish butter, and a fair amount of paraffin.

We brought back a scrap of leather and five hymnbooks, which will improve our Sunday Services. We only had seven between us.

Am writing this from Cape Evans.
Don't tell anyone that I thought Shackleton's stash useful. He is the enemy, after all.
