August 11 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, WEDNESDAY [Aug.] 11th [1847]: “The schooner arrived from Honolulu today. Judge Turrill the present consul came with his son and a number of others, Mrs. Gelett & Dibble, Mr. Armstrong and many others. This afternoon we walked out. Mr. Turrill and Hubbard took tea here; is a large fat man, and intends to make money enough so when called to resign he will be all right with his 30,000 [dollars?].”

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] AUGUST 11 [1858]: “Lowered about five o’clock this morning. The bow boat went onto one, and the boatsteerer missed him. Oh, dear! They are boiling, chasing, and cutting all around us, and we can do nothing but chase. Lowered several times during the day without success. Samuel went on board the Paulina. They were boiling [the blubber of] their first whale.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from August 10-17, 1860.
