May 31 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, MONDAY MAY 31st [1847]: “At 3 this morning doctor and Charley started so to get over the mountain before the sun got up far. The day has been showery and withal gloomy — We have been much taken up in fixing [doll] babies for the girls and think we have a week’s work before us to mend and make some 10 babies — Mr. Forbes called this afternoon. Towards night it cleared away. The moon is now shining beautiful and clear –“

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] MAY 31 [1858]: “Quite a strong breeze and a thick fog. A number of ships around us, but they cannot be seen unless they are close by us. Spoke the Mary, Captain Jenks, in the morning.”

Eliza Williams did not make a journal entry for this date in 1860.
