Amundsen responds to a request from Isaac N. Sargent of Malden, Massachusetts for information about his voyages: "I have been several times in the Arctic but only twice for my own account both times with my vessel the 'Gjoa' first trip in 1901-1902 and second trip 1903-1906[.] ... I never tried to proceed towards the north and do not exactly know to what latitude I have been but you will easily be able to construct it in following my route on the map." - Matted and framed with portrait photograph of Amundsen.
