Excerpt: ... 146 CHAPTER VL The W1nter N1ght. It really looked as if we were now frozen in for good, and I did not expect to get the Fram out of the ice till we were on the other side of the Pole, nearing the Atlantic Ocean. Autumn was already well advanced; the sun stood lower in the heavens day by day, and the temperature sank steadily. The long night of winter was approaching--that dreaded night. There was nothing to be done except prepare ourselves for it, and by degrees we converted our ship, as well as we could, into comfortable winter quarters, while at the same time we took every precaution to assure her against the destructive influences of cold, drift-ice, and the ether forces of nature to which it was prophesied that we must succumb.
