May 9 [1847, 1858 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [May] 9th [1847]: “Cloudy with showers. The residents all say that they have never seen so much rain at Lahaina and that it is seldom they enjoyed a shower. These light rains keep down the dust and makes it much more agreeable to one when walking out. Mr. Forbes has not returned so we have no meeting to the chapel. Mr. Baldwin has the native church whilst Mr. Alexander holds services at the seminary and Mr. Hunt attends the congregations at Kaanapali.”

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] MAY 9 [1858]: “The Champion the only ship in sight in the morning. About nine o’clock raised two more, but no whales yet seen or heard of.”

Eliza Williams, [Wed.] May 9th [1860]: “White Rock in sight. A good many Whales have been taken about there, in seasons past.”
