1st February, 1912

Heavy collar work most of the day. Wind light. Did 8 miles. Started well in the afternoon and came down a steep slope in quick time; then the surface turned real bad—sandy drifts—very heavy pulling.

Working past 8PM we just fetched a lunch cairn of Dec 29, when we were only a week out from the depot. It ought to be easy to get in with a margin, having 8 days' food in hand (full feeding). We have opened out on the increase in food and it makes a lot of difference.

Wilson's leg much better. Evans' fingers now very bad, two nails coming off, blisters burst.
