Friday, 19 November 1910


Scott wrote to Keltie, "Amundsen seems to be acting very mysteriously, but I can't believe he is going to McMurdo Sound -- I wired to Nansen, his reply was 'unknown' from which I conclude that he has not thought fit to even inform his supporters in Norway in respect to his intentions -- Well we shall know in due course I suppose."
