–from Apsley Cherry-Garrard’s account The Worst Journey in the World–
“October 29. Hut Point. The mule party, under Wright, consisting of Gran, Nelson, Crean, Hooper, Willamson, Keohane, and Lashly, left Cape Evans at 10:30 and arrived here at 5 p.m. after a good march in perfect weather. They leave Debenham and Archer at the hut, and I am afraid it will be dull work for them the next three months. Archer turned out early and made some cakes which they have brought with them. They camped for lunch seven miles from Cape Evans.
“This is the start of the Search Journey. Everything which forethought can do has been done, and to a point twelve miles south of corner Camp the mules will be travelling light owing to the depots which have been laid.”
