9th April 1861

Mary Brewster’s journal for her voyage from 1845 – 1848 ended on March 8, 1848 when the Tiger arrived home (Stonington, CT). Mary and her husband, Samuel did not return to sea for their last voyage until June 1848. However, Mary’s journal-writing did not resume until July 13, 1848.

Mary Lawrence’s journal will resume May 1, 1859.

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries from Feb. 27 – May 7, 1861.  On April 9th [1861], Eliza wrote: “I have sat down to write a very little about my visit to Hilo, on the Island of Hawaii. We returned on board the Ship last evening and immediately got under way. We are now bound to Honolulu, the Island of Oahu, and expect to arrive there tomorrow.”
