21st July [1858 and 1860]

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries from July 20-23, 1847.

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] JULY 21 [1858]: “Began to drag last night soon after anchoring, so put down the second anchor. The wind came in squalls with great violence, but we lay very still. It blows strong this morning but with less force than through the night. Find the Harmony close by us this morning. She dragged considerably through the night. P.M. The gale abated, and after tea we took up our anchors and started to go around Indian Point, which is a long low point of land reaching out fifteen or twenty miles in to the sea with huts on the point. The Harmony left several hours before us.”

Eliza Williams, [Sat.] July 21st [1860]: “We are now going to the Bays as soon as we get a fair wind.”
