August 9 [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, MONDAY [Aug.] 9th [1847]: “The weather is very warm and uncomfortable. Lahaina goes ahead of all places for dust. A slight breeze takes it up and everything is completely covered outside and within doors. Had a note from Mrs. Forbes who wishes me to visit her tomorrow, which will do for a change –”

Mary Lawrence did not make a journal entry for this date in 1858.

Eliza Williams, [Thurs.] August 9th [1860]: “It has been a rainy and foggy day. We have gone a little further out of the Bay. It let up a spell tonight, so that we could see several Ships. Mr. Morgan has been aboard of the Bark Oscar, Capt. Landers. He sent us a late New Bedford paper. He says that a great number of Whales have been seen around the Rocks, for the last two or three days. The place called the Rocks is about 3 miles from here.”
