Transcription

from the sun of the N. side of a bluff of solid rock. The surface of the ground rises gentle to a height of about 200 ft. above the top of the ice at a dist[ance] of a mile or two. [Sketch, showing formation]. This remnant of glacier seems to have had accessions of snow from time to time, or it may be wholly a snow formation belong[ing] to the spot like that in process of formation about Cape Lisburne and N. near the coal mine. It seems rather white for old glacial ice.
