6th August 1858 and Godey’s 1869

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

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] AUGUST 6 [1858]: “Lay to in a gale through the day. The weather has been clear and bright. We have been east far enough and have seen nothing and are now going on what they call compass ground. No ship in sight.”

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