April 25 [1847 and1858]

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY [April] 25th [1847]: “Have written a letter and sent it by Capt. Hall to my husband hoping it may reach him some future time. Capt. Hall sailed this afternoon. So they go and none coming. Capt. Hoyer from Hilo called to see me today; he was bound to Honolulu after Mrs. Reynard to take her to his house. So closes another week passed at Lahaina, feeling very well and as happy as I can be in the absence of my husband.”

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] APRIL 25 [1858]: “Foggy as usual. Have had no observations for five days, but we have plenty of sea room as yet. This is the Sabbath. Cold, dreary, and uncomfortable. Our friends at home have twice wended their way to the house of God, and the blessings they have there sought for themselves, they have alike sought for us, the absent, the deprived of like privileges; and as their eyes are now closed in sleep, perhaps they are dreaming of loved ones on the sea. I love to think that the same Eye watches over us and those dear faraway ones, and that the same Arm is outstretched over them that protects us. We are alike under His care whether on the land or on the sea.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries on April 25-26, 1860.
