13 January, 1912

Camp 65
Height 10,270 Temperature: -22.5  Latitude: 89 degrees 9 minutes south.

Just over 11 miles for the day. Another day with double figures and a bit over. The chance holds.

It looks as though we are descending slightly. It is wearisome work this tugging and straining to advance a light sledge. Still, we get along. I did manage to get my thoughts off the work for a time today, which is very restful. We should be in a poor way without our ski, though Bowers manages to struggle through the soft snow without tiring his short legs.

Only 51 miles from the Pole tonight. If we don't get to it we shall be damned close.
