The journey of Lieutenant Peary is most extraordinary. Its most important geographic result is the determination of a great fiord opening eastward into the Greenland sea at a point some 200 miles north of the highest position reached on the eastern coast of Greenland by any of Lieutenant Peary’s predecessors. Perhaps not less important is the confirmation of the opinion expressed eight years ago by General Greely that Greenland ends near the 82d parallel, and that the land to the northward is probably separate. Lieutenant Peary’s most northerly point, in latitude 82, was that looking down on the great fiord which debouches in Independence bay. It is of course not proved, but it is almost beyond question, that this is a continuation of Nordenskiold inlet, which begins in the Polar ocean near the 83d parallel. Of this fiord, discovered by Lieutenant Lockwood May 6,1882, that lamented and distinguished officer says : ” The fiord at whose mouth we camped ran to the southeast or south to an immense distance; no land visible at its head.” Lockwood was a very conservative man, and he charted this fiord southeastward to only longitude 45, which is but five degrees eastward, or less than fifty miles northwest of the most northerly point reached by Lieutenant Peary. The character of the land seen by Peary to the north and northwest indicates satisfactorily that these two fiords are one, as charted by Lieutenant Peary in the New York Sun of October 31. The discovery of musk-oxen at Independence bay confirms General Greely’s supposition, put forth in 1884, that these animals reach the eastern coast of Greenland through Nordenskiold or some adjacent inlet. In his sketch map (New York San, October 31) Peary extends the northern coast of Independence bay some fifty miles eastward, to about 25 west longitude.
