6th December [1846 and 1857]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [Dec.] 6th [1846]: “The Cabinet came up and anchored near to us which makes 5 ships, quite a fleet. Capt. M- and B- on board this afternoon and took tea. [Gold] Mining all the talk. Capt. B- says his folks are all in a hurry to mine it [gold]. Oh what charms the supposed gold has. At a late hour the Company left and we were alone — “

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.] DECEMBER 6 [1857]: “Went around to the other side of the island, and as it was the Sabbath, we only sent a boat in to see if wood might be obtained there. Had no further communication with the shore during the day. As there is an abundance of wood to be procured there; we shall probably lay off for several days.”

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