1st November [1848 and 1857]

Mary Brewster did not make a journal entry for this date in 1846.

Martha Brown, Wed. November 1, 1848: “We have commenced another month and yet I am looking. Not yet been permitted to behold my husband for whose return I have been anxiously looking for the past two weeks. I went down on Monday eve, as I thought of doing. Spent the evening very pleasantly. There was from 15 to 20 Captains and four ladies. Many of them very much the Gentleman. Spent two nights there, went to McKee Tuesday. Wednesday made several calls, and returned in the valley tonight with Mr. Damon. Very much fatigue and almost sick. The babe is well and so good, I cannot describe it. Do come and see. Pleasant.”

Mary Lawrence [Sunday] NOVEMBER 1 [1857]: “This afternoon, in company with Captain Spencer, Mr. Chestnut, Samuel, Mrs. Butler, Mrs. Scofield, Mrs. Stranburg, and Mrs. Palmer, visited the American sloop of war St. Mary’s. It was my first visit on board a man-of-war, and it was attended with some curiosity. The officers were very gentlemanly and polite in showing us round, etc. After a very pleasant visit they took us onshore in their boat.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between Oct. 30 – Nov. 9, 1859
