10 June, 1911

Yet another blizzard. Simpson has been up all night pondering theories about this phenomenon. They are very complicated and involve lots of lines and clouds and areas marked A, B, and C.

Atkinson has found sleeping-sickness in a fish.

Now that we are nearly at mid-winter, I have decided to begin thinking about the details of next season's traveling equipment. The crampons, finnesko and an idea for a double tent have been discussed today. P.O. Evans and Lashly are delightfully intelligent in carrying out instructions.

You can bet your cotton socks Amundsen hasn't given his things as much thought as we have. He's probably just sitting out there on the ice twiddling his thumbs waiting for spring and trying to feed all those dogs.
