23rd July 1858

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

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] JULY 23 [1858]: “Foggy for the most part of the night and a greater part of this day. No land could be seen, and the only way we could tell where we were was by using the lead and line. About 4 P.M. it cleared away so that we had a view of the land and found ourselves just where Samuel had predicted, off St. Lawrence heads [in the Pacific or Arctic, not the Atlantic]. Have been any quantity of mussel diggers around today, and we have had four boats in pursuit of them without success as yet. Captain Coffin informed us that Captain Gibbs of the Speedwell has given up his intention of going south and has returned to the bays again to look for bowheads. May success attend him. In the evening Samuel went on board the Champion for a short time.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries for July 22-23, 1860.
