30 June, 1911
The temperature is steadily falling. Today we reached -39 degrees.
Have been working with Day on measuring ice.
Have found our loose dogs had been attacking a seal and then came across a dead seal which had evidently been worried to death some time ago. It appears Demetri saw more seal further to the north, and this afternoon Meares has killed a large one as well as the one which was worried this morning.
It is good to find the seals so close, but very annoying to find that the dogs have discovered their resting place.
The long spell of fine weather is very satisfactory.
