28th April [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [April] 28th [1847]: “Mr. and Mrs. Forbes left for Honolulu today in the Uncas. Mrs. Gelett stops there whilst her husband is absent. Mrs. Forbes has left her horse for Mrs. Winslow’s use and we intend to make good use of him. Capt. Edwards took tea here.”

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

Eliza Williams, [Sat.] April 28th [1860]: “A beautiful day. Finished cutting the Whale this morning. He is very poor. Will not make as much [oil] as they thought for.  Mrs. Randolph stayed with me all night. Capt. R. and my Husband thought it best to separate, as they might see Whales, so Mrs. Randolph and the Boy have gone aboard of their Ship. I was some disappointed, as well as herself, for we had reckoned upon a nice gam today, but it is whaling times now, and the Ladies must submit. Have seen Whales once today. It has been a nice day.”
