Excerpt from The Search for Franklin: A Narrative of the American Expedition Under Lieutenant Schwatka, 1878 to 1880

The instructions given to Frankhn by the Admiralty had directed him to pass through Lancaster Sound into Barrow Strait, thence to Cape Walker, and from Cape Walker to make his way into Behring Strait by any possible channel. The general Opinion was that he had sailed to the west Of Melville Island (or Peninsula), and then been caught in the ice among the islands which stud that portion of the Polar Sea. And it was assumed, but on very insufficient grounds, that he would be engaged in an effort to cross the ice and reach one Of the Hudson Bay Company's settlements or some whaling-station.
