The Aurora had broken away

“I heard the first rumour of the Aurora’s misadventures in the Ross Sea from Mr. Sørlle. Our host could tell me very little. He had been informed that the Aurora had broken away from winter quarters in McMurdo Sound and reached New Zealand after a long drift, and that there was no news of the shore party. His information was indefinite as to details, and I had to wait until I reached the Falkland Islands some time later before getting a definite report concerning the Aurora.”
