January 9 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY JANUARY 9th [1847]: “Capt. Mallory called this morning. Capt. Bottum on board all day helping mend boats. Whaling is all the talk, no more mining. Capt. Smith has taken his men from the Island and they are all whaling. Our boats and the Cabinet’s are mated [working together]. Just at night they got to the ships with two whales which were both taken by our mates. So ends this week.

Mary Lawrence, [Sat.] JANUARY 9 [1858]: “Fine weather in the forenoon. In the afternoon were obliged to lay to in a gale. Saw a ship after tea which we judge to be the same one that we have seen at times for several days.”

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