Shackleton’s ‘Endurance’ Expedition, February 2, 1916: “. . . the third boat has been brought up . . .”

–from Sir James Wordie’s diary—

“2 February. 65º 14 ½’ S., 52 º 18’ W. A red letter day—the third boat has been brought up from Ocean Camp. It has taken a long time to persuade the Boss to tis move, and I doubt he would have done it, had it not been for the general feeling in camp; its importance is obvious, should we fail to reach Paulet Island.”
