June 24 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY [June] 24th [1847]: “Mr. Gulick left early this morning with is boys and Alvan Clark, they take a canoe to within a few miles of Macawao. I have not missed them at all — Mr. Gulick is like the rest of the brethren, pleased with the work he is engaged in. His boys are still and bashful and awkward, the eldest I have been told was a great genius but I saw nothing in him different from most lads of his age.  I have spent most of the day with Mrs. Conde — This afternoon we took a ride in a wagon which Mr. C had made it was a neat and very easy conveyance. The roads here are very good so we went a number of miles and I enjoyed it very much — I was quite astonished to see so much land uncultivated, not more than a third is cultivated and that with taro and sweet potatoes. They sat that no ships come in here — as it is the windward side and they have no chance to sell produce if raised. Then the chiefs hold all the land and they cannot afford to hire it so they live on with nothing to arouse their ambition if they possessed any. They are poor miserable set and their wants are few.”

Mary Lawrence, [Thurs.] JUNE 24 [1858]: “All day we have been, as it were, alone upon the waters. Not a ship to be seen. It seems very lonely now to be alone after seeing so many ships. We do not leak but little now. When we get to the bay to patch up on the outside a little, I think we shall get along nicely.”

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