December 5 [1846 and 1857]

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY DECEMBER 5th [1846]: “Mr. Brewster went across the bay this morning in hopes of seeing some of the Spaniards to get some bullock but there was none down. The nearest family lives some 6 miles in the country and so on for some ways back. They are poor and subsist principally upon milk and beef which they have in abundance and are glad to dispose of. The other two ships have a plenty and keep the Spaniards all to their two ships and so it has been. Was sewing in my room this afternoon when looking up at the sound of footsteps Mr. Bottum from the Cabinet stood before me. His ship was down by the entrance of the bay and seeing ships he came up to get someone to pilot him. They stayed till after tea and then started being nearly dark.”

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.] December 5 [1857]: “Made Sunday Island just before sunset.”

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