December 27 [1846 and 1857]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY DECEMBER 27th [1846]: “The weather is always pleasant. In the morning we have the land breeze. About 10, the sea breeze strikes in which makes it cool and comfortable at all hours of the day. This day we have been alone and very pleasantly spent — I think if spared to return to my native land that these days will be recollected as some of the pleasantest of my life. Our crew are all on board having bid the Island farewell–“

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] DECEMBER 27 [1857]: “A thick fog in the morning, regular right whale weather or ‘hoggy’, as the French captain of the De Hautpoul called it.  In the forenoon had a hard shower, so that we soon caught water enough for our next washing day.”

Eliza Williams did not  make any journal entries between Dec. 26-30, 1859.
