THE DIARY OF A DYING MAN (1907)
Jørgen Brønlund (1877-1907) was a Greenlandic polar explorer, sled driver, and interpreter who participated in the 1902-1904 Danish Literary Greenland Expedition and the 1906-1908 Denmark Expedition. This is the final entry in his travel diary. He was the last survivor of Sled Team 1, and knew he had no chance of survival. It says:
Died 79 Fjord after attempt to travel home over the inland ice in month of November. I arrived here in fading moonlight, and could not go on because of frostbite in my feet and darkness. The other's bodies are in the middle of the fjord in front of a glacier (about 18 km) ... Hagen died November 15 and Mylius about 10 days later.
The diary and the expedition's maps were found four months later next to his body in the cave where he took shelter.
Brønlund's diary is a part of Royal Danish Libray's Manuscript Department. Have a closer look at the diary here.
