19th July [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, MONDAY [July] 19th [1847]: “Went out and made a call into Mrs. Baldwin’s. Employed in sewing the remainder of the day, trying my skill in dressmaking. Mr. Hubbard and Everett took tea here. Mr. E. is a merchant in Honolulu, he came out in the schooner Kamehameha some two years ago.”

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] JULY 19 [1858]: “All the anchored ships got under way in the morning except the Omega, Captain Sanborn. In the afternoon the Marengo’s boats went down after a bowhead, which they fortunately captured, and got him alongside about 2 P.M., the first whale they have taken this season. Saw the Nassau’s boats chasing a mussel digger. About teatime spoke the Omega, of Fairhaven. Captain Whalon came on board for a short time. He has been in the Arctic and out again like a great many others without seeing anything. Left nine other ships anchored off East Cape yesterday morning. A strong breeze through the afternoon, still increasing.”

Eliza Williams did not make a journal entry for this date in 1860.
