May 25 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [May] 25th [1847]: “I hardly know what to write in this journal tonight. Lahaina is not the place for news — or much of anything which would be interesting. I have taken a fine ride. Saw the french lady and husband in company with a native woman of no very good character. Conclude they are not very respectable from their company which have seen them today — promenading.”

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] MAY 25 [1858]: “A fine morning still and clear. The boats have all gone in the ice to look for a whale. Ships around us in all directions, seven of them boiling. Boats returned about two o’clock having seen nothing. Afternoon, spoke the ship America, Captain Bryant; one whale [this] season. After tea Samuel took Minnie and went on board the Gay Head to make a short call. Minnie had a fine time and came back very much delighted with her visit. Eighteen months of our voyage expires today.”

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