goes with Day and Hooper now returning.  We are making fair
progress and the ponies doing fairly well.  I hope we shall
get through to the glacier without difficulty, but to make
sure I am carrying the dog-teams farther than I intended at
first—­the teams may be late returning, unfit for further
work or non-existent....—­R.  SCOTT.

CHAPTER X

THE POLAR JOURNEY (continued)

The Southern Journey involves the most important object of the Expedition....  One cannot affect to be blind to the situation:  the scientific public, as well as the more general public, will gauge the result of the scientific work of the Expedition largely in accordance with the success or failure of the main object.  With success all roads will be made easy, all work will receive its proper consideration.  With failure even the most brilliant work may be neglected and forgotten, at least for a time.—­SCOTT.
