Transcription

wave about 2 P.M. This caused the Captain to decide that he could not risk any farther effort-making in the Arctic in the present condition of the rudder at this time of year when bad weather is to be looked for, especially as from the condition of the ice as far as we saw it our hopes of again landing on Wrangel Land or of adding appreciably to the knowledge already acquired is very small. Mended the rudder chain by 3 P.M. and headed the Corwin for the American shore about Point Hope. Sep 3 Mild, temp. 47. Calm, with heavy swell. 35 miles off Pt. Hope at 8 P.M. where we came to kedge anchor.
