28th October [1846 and 1857]

Mary Brewster, WEDNESDAY [Oct.] 28th [1846]:“Calm most part of the day. Towards night had a light breeze from NW. Engaged in sewing and knitting. Read till 8 then went on deck. The weather mild and a beautiful moonlit evening scarcely a cloud to be seen.”

Martha Brown did not make a journal entry for this date in 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] OCTOBER 28 [1857]: “Visited the clipper ship John Gilpin in company with my husband [and] Mr. and Mrs. Butler. I wished very much for a small piece of her spacious cabin to enlarge mine a little. Mrs. Butler (as Miss Howland) came out from the States in this ship about two years since and immediatley on her arrival was married to Mr. Butler before going onshore. Consequently the John Gilpin seems very near her.”

Eliza Williams made no journal entries between Oct. 22 – 28, 1859.
