27th February [1847, 1858 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY [Feb.] 27th [1847]: “First part calm. Middle the same. Latter light breeze and warm pleasant weather. I have been busy all day, completed my bonnet and read the remainder of the day and till 8 this evening when I went on deck and passed a pleasant hour.”

Mary Lawrence, [Sat.] FEBRUARY 27 [1858]: “Quite a strong breeze. Killed a hog in the afternoon.”

Eliza Williams, [Mon.] February 27th [1860]: “It has been an unpleasant day — squally with wind and rain. The fore topsail split and parted the foor rope, and they had to take it down to repair and put up another. We expected to have gone to Ascension this morning and spent the day with Mr. Sturgis’ Family, but it was so thick this morning that we could not see land far off, and when we did see it, we were some few miles to the windward of it, and vary bad weather, so we had to give up the idea of going there this time. We have letters for Mr. Sturgis from Mr. and Mrs. Snow.”
