November 21 [1846 and 1857]

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY [Nov.] 21st [1846]: “Thick damp fog nearly as bad as rain cleared about 9 and the remainder of the day warm and pleasant. The boats off most of the day fishing. I am very much pleased with our situation. Can get a great variety of fish, clams or what we call cohaug [or quahog], oysters, crawfish, and birds. Capt. Smith made us a call. Boats returned with fish, a turtle, a bushel of clams, and 13 birds. We shall live high certainly.”

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, [Sat.] NOVEMBER 21 [1857]: “Samuel sat up most of the night last night to look out for a small island called Bennet’s Island that was in our immediate vicinity. Passed to the westward of it, however, and did not see it.” 

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between Nov. 17-25, 1859.
