Little America, Antarctica, May 27—It is still overcast and gloomy, as though the Antarctic were sulking at our comfort and trying to retaliate by limiting looks outdoors.

There has been a full week of this dull weather, with comparatively mild temperatures. Saturday night it became as warm as five degrees above zero, a surprising rise as the wind was not unusually strong.

Sunday morning it was from the south and became a little colder and then shifted around to the east, when our storms[[?]] mercury dropped to 20 below zero again. It is as if the weather were brooding and trying to make up its mind what to do, but probably it won't do anything except get colder and colder, for the days of great cold are not far off.

There is a faint, discouraged moon shining through the haze and it is too bad, for now it should be at its brightest and it would be pleasant to have it light he way down the inlet trail, where most of the walking is done.

But no matter how moody and repellant the frozen world may be outside, it is warm and cheery in the houses and the days go very rapidly. In less than a month the winter day will be reached and we can look ahead to the return of the sun.
