April 11 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster writes SUNDAY 12th [11th, 1847], while at Maui: “Have not been out today thought best not to go to church as my thoughts and feelings are in a different direction and I don not think it right to go to hear preaching without you calculate to try to fix your mind on what is said and be benefitted by the same. Have read some and passed the time as profitably perhaps as I should anywhere.”

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] APRIL 11th [1858]: “Nothing of interest has transpired for the last week. Have had rough, windy, drizzling weather about every day. It is also quite cool, and a fire [wood-burning stove] which he have now in our cabin is very comfortable as well as cheerful. Have also had an addition of five pigs which were short-lived, as we already had more than we could accommodate.”

Eliza Williams did not make a journal entry for this date in 1860.
