8th January [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, FRIDAY [Jan.] 8th [1847]: “Bow boat got badly stoven [damaged]. Great place for cracked cedar. Capt. Bottum proposed mating and finally it was agreed upon as we can lower but two [boats] and he the same. I am in my room most of the time doing most anything which is amusing, mending stockings, trousers, and suchlike.   Mr. Brewster is on board of the Cabinet. It is now nearly 9, and when he comes I shall read him a lecture on keeping late hours.”

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] JANUARY 8 [1858]: “Commenced boiling this forenoon. Saw a ship which we thought to be the Japan, but as soon as we commenced boiling, he started off. Quite rugged in the morning, but about noon it cleared away, and we had fine weather for the remainder of the day.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from Jan. 6-9, 1860.
