[[Strikethrough]] Kane [[/Strikethrough]] Smith Sound;
Midway between Cape Sabine, Ellesmere Land,and Greenland. We saw Numerous schools of Narwhal swimming in the open water, close to the Edge of the very heavy Arctic ice. Here we secured our Walrus Pups two of them. We gathered a few Birds on [[lnc?]] Garry, Littleton Island, and around Pandora Harbour. The ice lay close to the Canadian shore almost to the Cary Islands; and thence to the mouth of Jones Sound Canadian Shore. We had a delightful trip almost to the Bottom of Olricks Bay
