Commander Robert E. Peary of the United States Navy has made a record of "farthest north"—87 degress and 6 minutes. The highest latitude previously reached was that of the Duke of Abruzzi's expedition, 86 degrees 34 minutes. Herbert L. Bridgman, secretary of the Peary Arctic Club, received from Peary this communication:—
Hopedale, Labrador, via Twillingate,
Newfoundland, Nov. 2.
Herbert L. Bridgman:—Roosevelt wintered north coast Grant Land, somewhat north Alert winter quarters. Went north with sledges, February, via Hecla and Columbia. Delayed by open water between 84 and 85 degrees. Beyond 85 degrees six days. Gale disrupted ice, destroyed caches; cut off communication with supporting bodies and drifted due east. Reached 87 degrees 6 minutes north latitude, over ice, drifting steadily eastward. Returning, ate eight dogs. Drifted eastward, delayed by open water, reached north coast Greenland in straitened circumstances. Killed musk ox and returned along Greenland coast to ship. Two supporting parties driven on north coast of Greenland. One rescued by me in starving condition. After one week's recuperation on Roosevelt, sledged west, completing north coast Grant Land, and reached other land, near 100th meridian. Homeward voyage incessant battle with ice, storms, and head winds. Roosevelt magnificent ice fighter and sea boat. No deaths or illness in expedition.
