June 8 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [June] 8th [1847]: “It is arranged that we visit Hana Estate and in a week from now we start. Mrs. Whittlesey is at Wailuku and will travel in company with us — we have commenced getting ready today. Mrs. Winslow has had the carpets taken up and we look quite like moving time. The house will be painted whilst we area absent. Doct. is making a tent to take with us, so when night overtakes we shall have a covering for to sleep under — when completed it will be very nice and comfortable — Mrs. Baldwin’s child is very sick. Wrote a letter to Mrs. Hoyer and Reynard to send the first chance.”

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] JUNE 8 [1858]: “Lowered the boats three times for one whale, but they could not get near him. Two ships in sight. Samuel is quite undetermined where to go now. He had calculated upon seeing ice and whales off Thaddeus. We are now looking around for ice, thinking if we find it we might find whales at the same time. About eight o’clock spoke the William and Henry. Captain Linnell came on board and stopped until ten. Just as he left his boat, a thick fog set in which shut his ship from our sight.”

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