January 15 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, [Fri., January] 15th [1847]: “At 12, boats got a whale to the ship. Capt. Bottum took dinner with us. I have been busy all day in mending old clothes and since I have read. Mr. Wilkes works rather amusing and well calculated to take up the mind. For a historical work too full of anecdotes and personal allusions.   A number of people from the shore off had some cheese sent me –“

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] JANUARY 15 [1858]: “The gale continued unabated until about eleven o’clock, when it rapidly increased. About twelve o’clock shipped another heavy sea which went across the ship with such force as to carry away the bow boat, davits, etc. from the other side. The gale was much harder than any we have experienced since leaving home. In the afternoon the gale rather abated, and the sea went down.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between Jan. 14-18, 1860.
