How we shall count the days

“Six proven veterans, seasoned by the salt & experience of the Sea. The distance to… South Georgia is 700 miles, 700 miles of wintry sea, the most tempestuous zone of the oceans. The Caird is an excellent sailer, & guided by providence, should make Sth. Georgia in 14 days. It is intended to commission the “Undine” of the Grytviken Whaling Coy, & rescue this party immediately. How we shall count the days.”

— Frank Hurley
