2nd August 1858

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries from August 2-6, 1847.

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] AUGUST 2 [1858]: “Cloudy and rainy for the most part of the day. Captain Bryant of the America came on board in the morning. He left his wife in Maui this season and has had an infant born there since he left. He has received one letter from her since he left containing the sad intelligence that little Mary White (Dr. White’s daughter) was very low with the dysentery and that they  had given up all hopes of her life. She was Minnie’s little playmate at Maui and a remarkably interesting child of five years. I sincerely hope that she has been spared to them. They have lost two children, and she is their all now. Captain Bryant has taken four whales this season, making him 350 barrels. Have seen nothing that looked like whales today.”

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