22 July, 1911
Sorry not to have written. There has been very little to report of late. The horses are going on well, are all in good form, at least for the moment. They drink a good deal of water in the morning. This, and the better ventilation of the stable make for an improvement we think—perhaps the increase of salt allowance is also beneficial.
Today we have another raging blizzard, the wind running up to 72 mph in gusts—one way or another the Crozier Party must have had a pretty poor time. I do hope they have adequate shelter.
Imagine if they only had their sleeping bags for comfort! Actually it doesn't bear thinking about.
