April 29 [1858 and 1860]

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

Mary Lawrence, [Thurs.] April 29 [1858]: “Quite a severe gale came on last night, which has blown with increasing force through the day, attended with some rain.”

Eliza Williams, [Sun.] April 29th [1860]: “Have had a nice day and a strong breeze. There were this morning 7 Ships in sight — the South Boston, the Winslow, the Harvest, and the Graffenburge, Capt. Enburge, a Russian. The others we did not know. Spoke the South Boston this afternoon. Capt. R. came aboard and stayed a short time. He said that his Wife has some seasick today. The Baby is quite smart. They have seen Whales today and came very near striking one. We have started the tryworks.”
