8th April 1860

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

Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries from April 7-10, 1858.

Eliza Williams, [Sun.] April 8th [1860]: “It has been a very fine day; a strong breeze all day but not fair — almost ahead. We are now in the Straits, the land all around us, and the wind is getting fierce. We shall get through by morning, I think. We raised [sighted] a Ship this morning, and when she was a long way off, they knew her to be the Omega. We soon came up with her, and Capt. Whalon came aboard and spent the afternoon and evening with us. He has seen no whales since we saw him before; he has had very bad weather.
