Since the 21st we have had a continuous gale WSW and SW. We had fuel to make to cups of tea apiece and bare food for two days on the 20th.
Every day we have been ready to start our depot 11 miles away, but outside the door of the tent it remains a scene of whirling drift. I do not think we can hope for better things now. We shall stick it out until the end, but we are getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I cannot write anymore.
