Shackleton’s ‘Aurora’ adrift, July 1, 1915:

–quoted in Shacklton’s “South” from the log of Captain J. R. Stenhouse, adrift on the ‘Aurora’ in the Ross Sea–

“July 2.–The 1st of July! Thank God. The days pass quickly. Through all my waking hours one long thought of the people at Cape Evans, but one must appear happy and take interest in the small happenings of shipboard.”
