4th May [1847, 1858 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [May] 4th [1847]: “Passed the day as usual in sewing and find if my hands are employed that my mind is also. Mr. Hunt called with Mr. Clark from Wailuku, a missionary who has been here some 20 yrs. Mr. Hunt starts tomorrow for Hana to see his wife. This evening we have called to Mrs. Baldwin’s, had a pleasant call, was enlivened by a tune on the piano.”

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] May 4 [1858]: “A heavy gale, which continued for the day. The Champion quite near us, both laying to.”

Eliza Williams, [Fri.] May 4th [1860]: “It has been a very fine day, with a strong breeze. There are two Ships in sight — one of them, the Chandler Price, has been cutting in [processing] Whale. We have seen Finbacks today but no Right Whales. We have had beautiful weather the most of the time since we came into the Japan Sea.”
