24th May [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, MONDAY [May] 24th [1847]: “A ship in sight early this morning which proved to be French and late from Havre — the Capt. has his wife. Saw them pass this afternoon. Mr. Hunt & Whittlesey called this afternoon. Mr. Whittlesey leaves tomorrow for Wailuku. Mrs. Winslow went out to ride. This evening we went and have just returned from Dr. Baldwin’s where we passed an hour or so.”

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] MAY 24 [1858]: “A strong breeze in the morning. Commenced boiling. In the afternoon moderated. Eleven ships in sight. Gay Head close by us. Saratoga came down to us, and Captain Slocum came on board for a short time. Soon after he went back to his ship, they raised whales, lowered their boats, and succeeded in taking one, to the satisfaction probably of all concerned. The Caravan took one yesterday also, and there is a bark boiling in sight. Delightful weather, smooth and clear.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between May 14-25, 1860.
