Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1863–1912), British Antarctic explorer. "Message to the public," in Scott's journal, shortly before his death on the way back from his expedition to the South Pole.

His last entry, written March 29, 1912, read: "It seems a pity but I do not think I can write any more.... For God's sake look after our people." Extracts published in Scott's Last Expedition, vol. 1, ch. 20, ed. Leonard Huxley (1913).
