Excerpt from A Personal Narrative of the Discovery of the North-West Passage: With Numerous Incidents of Travel and Adventure During Nearly Five Years' Continuous Service in the Arctic Regions While in Search of the Expedition Under Sir John Franklin

I have, however, endeavoured to supply the deficiency, as far as lay in my power, from my notes.
