9 May, 1911

The talk went much better than I expected. Everyone seems to be quite anxious to know what we're doing. And no-one disagreed with me about the dogs!

Cherry's been experimenting with stone huts and blubber fires all with a view to prolonging the winter journey to Cape Crozier. All that practice will come in handy, I'm sure.

The Strait has been frozen over for a week, and still no sign of our Hut Point party. Perhaps they are waiting for the moon, which will be bright in a day or two.

Debenham's been sharing some of the photographs from the his Party - with Wright and Taylor's these will make an extremely interesting series; the ice forms in the region of the Koettlitz glacier are unique. Splendid, aren't they?
