–from the diary of Sir James Wordie—
“24 March. . 63º 13’5’ S., 53º 24’ W. Joinville Land very clearly seen this morning from 7.30 onwards. The highest summit, which we call Mt. Percy has twin peaks; to the north of it are two conspicuous domes and then much farther N another small rise.
“It has been a delightful warm day. Most people were glad to get the chance of washing their feet in the snow. I stripped and turned my undergarments in, having worn them without change for five months. Provided our chronometers are right we are 32 miles from the NE Danger Island, 45 from Pt. Moody and 60-1/2 from Mt. Percy.”
