"Uneasiness in the ice ahead of the ship, and shortly after 7 p.m., a rending crash causes all hands to rush up on deck. A crack has opened from the lead ahead of the ship, passed along our starboard to another crack that has formed aft. The ship is free, the first occasion since the 16th February. Through the clear water we can examine the damaged helm, which apparently has not sustained extensive damage, though it is twisted from the waterline down to the second rudder band."
