16th January [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, Saturday JANUARY 16th [1847]: “Cloudy with a light breeze. Have been washing and attending to my rooms which have been cleaned.   Saw a number of whale and large quantities of fish.”

Mary Lawrence, [Sat.] JANUARY 16 [1858]: “Quite a strong breeze, but the gale has left us. Minnie says she wishes that Papa would ‘luff up his helm’ and start for the Islands; she is quite tired of this weather, ‘for we came here for whales and can find nothing but gales” — and I think it is even so. Saw a ship today quite near us; probably she was not far distant during the gale. Had a severe pain in my face today, which I suppose proceeds from a defective tooth.”

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