November 15 [1846, 1857 and 1859]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [Nov.] 15th [1846]: “Commenced with thick cloudy weather and continued till 10 AM when it cleared up and remained good weather through the day. The day I have spent as I usually do in reading and some little time given to reflection.   LAT. 28.03   LONG. 116.57.”

Martha Brown’s journal entries ended on Nov. 11, 1848, when she was reunited with her husband who finally returned to Hawaii after being about six weeks overdue.

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] NOVEMBER 15 [1857]: “Saw Fanning Island; went quite near it. It appeared to be very low land covered with coconot trees. It is said to be inhabited. This is the first low land we have seen on the voyage; all other islands have been very mountainous.”

Eliza Williams, [Tues.] November 15th [1859]: “The wind is blowing a gale from the Northwest. The Ship is rolling and I cannot write. The Baby wants very much to be down on the deck playing, and I suppose he wonders why he can’t today, as well as any day.”
