21st June [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, [Mon.] June 21st [1847]: “Got up early and had everything taken care of and ready to start and whilst breakfast was preparing went to visit the falls which was some ways off and to get them we must cross the stream which was quite high….”

* After a late breakfast the group started out on their horses and reached Hana about 2 o’clock.

* Mary then writes about their lack of clothing and now well-worn shoes, although they had been new when Mary started her journey. The week before they had loaded most of their clothing on board a ship bound for Hana, but that it had yet to arrive. So, they borrowed clothing from Mrs. Conde.

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] June 21 [1858]: “A very heavy sea and quite a gale. I felt anxious, not knowing how our ship would stand such a heavy sea, but she withstood it bravely; leaks no more than in a calm. Spoke the Tybee again today. No gamming, as it was too rough.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between June 20 -24, 1860.
