25th June [1847, 1858 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, FRIDAY JUNE 25th [1847]: “Exchange of company today. This Doctor and his family over to Mrs. Whittlesey, Miss Ogden and self to Mrs. Conde’s to breakfast, to Mrs. Whittlesey’s to dinner, and to Mrs. Conde’s to tea, Mrs. Winslow and family back again to Whittlesey’s. The evening spent to Mrs. Conde’s very pleasantly in singing and chatting.”

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] JUNE 25 [1858]: “Saw a ship and a bark. After ten they came down and spoke us. Captain Brownson of the bark Baltic and Captain Barber of the Benjamin Tucker came on board and passed the evening.”

Eliza Williams, [Mon.] June 25th [1860]: “It has been a very fine day and mild, the wind from the South, what there has been, but it taken almost calm all day. I have been washing, the fore part of the day, and on deck with the Baby a good deal this afternoon. He enjoyed it much, being drawn in his little wagon and running about the deck. Have seen some kind of Whales from aloft once or twice a good way off. The Men have been breaking out the run for Sugar and other things.”
