Febraury 28 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [Feb.] 28th [1847]: “Calm pleasant weather all day. Mr. B. has spent the Sabbath below with me. All still and peaceful above as a Sabbath at home. The evening very warm and the moon shining bright and clear.   LAT. 21.31.”

Mary Lawrence did not make a journal entry for this date in 1858.

Eliza Williams, [Tues.] February 28th [1860]: “Another unpleasant day — frequent squalls of wind and rain, not heavy though. Have not seen the Josephine since we left Wellington Island. It is quite unpleasant below. Just at this time, the warm weather has caused the Ship to bilge, and our nice new white paint is about as black as if it had been painted that color. It also causes a very disagreeable smell, and to make the matter worse, it is such bad weather on deck that we must stay below — and worse still, have the skylight on [keep the skylight covered]. The Men on deck have been opening Cocoanuts all day for the hogs.”
