Febraury 14 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [Feb.] 14th [1847]: “Arose at seven this morning, found the ship underway for the Island where we were going for the purpose of wooding. The wind soon died away, so we did not anchor till 3 PM. We passed a great many whale and saw one very large one on the water for a half hour or so sunning himself. Our mate talked some of shooting at him but before he was ready it had gone down. I have been reading a great part of the time and written two letters. The Hibernia is nearly full and sails in a week for home.”

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] FEBRUARY 14 [1858]: “Most of our ship’s company went onshore today to church. We – Samuel, Minnie, and myself – did not go as we knew we should attract attention of the people from the minister and thought we might do more good by staying away. In the afternoon John brought his wife (my friend, as he calls her) to see me again.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries on Feb. 13, 14, 1860
