4th December 1846

Mary Brewster, FRIDAY [Dec.] 4th [1846]: “As the officers were all very anxious to see and get some of this said stuff husband said he had no objection and a boat’s crew could go if they wished as it would do for ballast if good for nothing else and the ship’s work was done till the whale came in. So Capt. Mallory and husband mated [agreed] and sent some men. They went and fixed a tent and left them to work ashore. Capt. Smith and Co. has carried 3 loads of stone past. They work night and day. The Spaniards have told them it is gold and they believe they are making their everlasting fortunes. But if we get a ship full I shall feel very poor and no richer by this stone treasure.”

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 did not make any journal entries between Nov. 28 – Dec. 4, 1857.

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from Dec. 1 – 10, 1859.
