May 27 [1847, 1858 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY MAY 27th [1847]: “Busy this forenoon in sewing. Mrs. Forbes’ children spent the afternoon here. This evening we went over to their house. Mrs. Forbes was asleep so we did not see her — she continues feeble and they are decided upon going to America — Mr. Forbes is always sociable and agreeable and when there we have a pleasant chat. It is now about 11 o’clock. I feel sleepy and lonesome thoughts towards the Northwest hoping my dear husband is well.”

Mary Lawrence, [Thur.] MAY 27 [1858]: “Samuel and Minnie went on board the Saratoga this morning. Stowed down our oil today: 95 barrels.”

Eliza Williams, May 27th [1860]: “It has been quite an unpleasant day — the sun over-clouded all day and rain a part of the day. We have seen a number of Humpbacks and lowered the boats. The Mate got fast to one with the Greener gun. The Whale ran very badly and finally drew the iron out. It must have killed him I think.”
