Rasmussen highly excited

“We steamed from Cumberland Bay on 5 December 1914, after bidding adieu to our good friends, and Rasmussen highly excited by drowning his sorrows, accompanied us some distance in his motor launch. Aheading, circling, and sterning it, in a most ludicrous and amusing fashion. MacDougall could be seen, the last figure, waving us bon voyage till we rounded Mount Dusie and headed for the open sea and the south.”
