Greely Expedition: Day 87

Day 87: Saturday, October 1st, 1881

Brainard tried to catch some fish today by dropping baited hooks and lines into the tide gauge. He left his lines for a few minutes and when he returned to they were devoid of bait. It is evidently lost time to try for fish at this place. There are numbers of very small shrimps, but no other fish and nothing at all larger.

Dr. Pavy still delayed at the station. Storm still raging.

Bath room finished today. Bender made a tin wash tub.

Shelves were put up on side of was in room today for the holding of our belongings.
