Since the 21st we have had a continuousgale WSW and SW. We have had fuel to make2 cups of tea apiece and bare foodfor 2 days on the 20th. Every day we have been getting ready to start our depot 11 miles away, but outside the door of the tent it remains a whirling drift. I don't we can hope for much more better things now. We shall stick it out until the end, but we are getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far. I seem it is a pity, but I don't think I can write anymore.
