February 8 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, MONDAY FEBRUARY 8th [1847]: “Busy all day in sewing. The weather pleasant, cloudy some part. The oil is all coopered and tomorrow they clean ship which I shall be glad to have in better condition, for when whaling business is carried on I keep below as the decks are oily and I like to keep my apartments clean.”

Mary Lawrence, FEBRUARY 8 [1858]: “Made 200 miles the last twenty-four hours. Expect to see the island of Magdalena, or Fatu Hiva, [of the Marquesas Islands] in the morning.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between Feb. 7-11, 1860.
