31st March 1860

Mary Brewster did not make a journal entry for this date in 1847.

Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries from March 30-April 5, 1858.

Eliza Williams, [Sat.] March 31st [1860]: “This morning there was a Merchant Brig in sight. The Mate went aboard of her before breakfast. He was in hopes to get some late [news]papers, but when he got on board, he found her to be a Dutch Brig, so we did not get any papers. She is right from Canegor. We learned from them that the Japanese there had killed two Dutch Captains and some Sailors and horridly mutilated them. We did not learn what the cause was. This Ship is bound to Shanghai. She will be there, with a fair wind, by the day after tomorrow.”
