7th June [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, MONDAY [June] 7th [1847]: “Well, here am I once more in my room most ready and quite willing to sleep. Two months today since my dear Companion sailed. In three more months I shall look for his return. I pray kind Providence prosper and shield him from all danger and soon, soon, return him to me.”

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] JUNE 7 [1858]: “Clear and bright. have done a large washing and feel well satisfied with my morning’s work. We are between Capes Navarin and Thaddeus, off the bay of Archangel Gabriel, the name laid down on the chart, a very singular name for a bay, to say the least. Five ships in sight, but we are disappointed in not seeing the whales. About eight o’clock P.M. saw one whale and lowered the boats without success.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from June 5-13, 1860.
