Greely Expedition: Day 29

Day 29: Thursday, August 4th, 1881

Clear, arrived at Carl Ritter Bay, about 12:30pm. We made a cache at the place of 2 barrels of hard bread, 2 boxes of canned corn beef, 1 sack of Pemmican, about 50 lbs. in weight. The party also made a cairn and left a record. A dense fog settled down in the afternoon, and continued all night, the ship laying too.
