then hired Eskimo boy as guide A bitter storm was raging - wind fog & snow - as we rounded the Cape. Great masses of ice piled on shore - rough - broken - wind from all directions - such a storm as greeted the daughter of Herodias (See 1st Chap. of the Wandering Jew). Rounded the most westerly point of either of the American continents in this terrible storm & reached Mr Lopp at 3 oclock - received a warm welcome - white bear steak for supper and reindeer for breakfast. -21st- Wrote letter to Debbie & sent out to Cape York p. b. by some Eskimo boys. Attended an Eskimo dance this afternoon in the "Koz-ga". Will describe it in my Notes - Bringing some curios - or rather ethnological specimens from the natives.
Attended dance in Eskimo "Koz-ge & treated to a case of hardtack.
