Greely Expedition: Day 53

Day 53: Sunday, August 28th, 1881

Lt. Greely gave us an order out today forbidding all games with cards and dice on Sunday. Hunting and out of door sports permitted. Divine service at 10am to be continued regular hereafter. Weather cleared about 11am. Jewell, Cross, and Ellison, armed for hunting took a walk over to the coal mine this afternoon. They returned without seeing any game, but report many tracks.
