26th January [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [Jan.] 26th [1847]: “Fresh sea breezes all day, boats off after a whale. I have been employed in knitting and reading, Husband below which makes the day go much faster with me when I have him to chat with. Capt B- made a call. The J.E. Donnald [New Bedford, MA] anchored near us today.”

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] JANUARY 26 [1858]: “Raised a ship a long way ahead of us. We gain upon her considerably. Perhaps we may be up with her tomorrow morning. We are enjoying delightful weather now, which we fully appreciate after the southern gales and storms we have experienced.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between Jan. 24-Feb. 1, 1860.
