From a letter Jan. 3, 1918: "A man told me that they had the coldest weather in 37 years. The thermometer has been way below zero at times and it still continues in the neighborhood of zero." One wonders what Gould would have thought had he known then that 10 years later he would be leading an antarctic sledge journey and braving temperatures of 40-60 degrees below zero!
