Strana 319 - Under these circumstances, we feel ourselves obliged to report that, in our opinion, a few days more of such exposure as they have already undergone, would reduce the number of the crew by sickness to such an extent as to hazard the safety of the ship and the lives of all on board.
Strana 232 - Let a man be what he will, when he comes here, he is soon as bad as the rest ; a man's heart is taken from him, and there is given to him the heart of a beast.

I knew that we were in close proximity to icebergs and field-ice, but, from the report of the look-out at sunset, believed that there was an opening or large bay leading to the southward.
