CLUE: Lieutenant Harding

To
ARCTICA RECOVERY EXPEDITION
Qanik Bay, Northwest Territories


Fm
DECKERD MANUSCRIPTS
Antique Evaluation & Restoration
San Francisco, California, USA

Among the wad of Master's documents you sent us, we discovered a handwritten note. We have fully reconstructed the message.

"13 Feb 1834. I respectfully notify my Captain and shipmates that I have parted company.
I am aware of the seriousness of my act and accept full responsibility. I have only taken enough food for two months, an ax, one rifle, and one of the sledges. I say this honestly, I am not scheming to deprive others of
their share. If any one person in the expedition wishes to join me, they may do so. If they have half a wit left, they will know where I have gone. But I frankly
doubt that this is the case.

Terrible Harding
Lieutenant, Royal Navy."
