The Bear 1914 collection actually includes two log books. The second starts on December 1 (image 408), with a switch to single-page images as well.

January through November logs consist of pairs of pages with location on the left (data) and date on the right (events).
December is single pages. First page of "pair" has date, location, and data. Second page of "pair" has events

Sent officer ashore to inquire after Lord Percy. Found Lord Percy and at 3:45 boat returned with Wm. Wheeler and John Tokluk?, who were Lord Percy's assistants.
4.15 Lord William Percy came on board for passage, bringing outfit and baggage.
I found an obituary for Lord William Percy which says he was an ornithologist (as well as being the 2nd son of the 7th Duke of Northumberland) and also a paper on Arctic Terns which mentions some arctic terns collected by him in Siberia in August 1914.

 :D  Aww- that's really nice and well remembered!  I had no idea that it was such a gap between the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the writing of The Star Spangled Banner :)

1:30 stopped and sent officer to board the "King and Winge". Learned that it has rescued the survivors of the "Karluk" on Wrangel Island at about 6:00am of the 7th instant.
2:30 the following named persons of the Canadian Arctic Expedition came on board:- John Munroe, R.F. Williamson, W.L. McKinlay, Burt M. McConnell, J.R. Hadley, E. Chafe, Robt. Templeman, H. Williams, F.W. Maurer, one Eskimo, his wife and 2 children, all of whom except Burt M. McConnell were rescued from Wrangell island.

More details on the Karluk (the ship had been crushed in ice and various attempts were made to get to land before some made it to Wrangel Island) and a photo of the survivors on board Bear.
