August 17 [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [Aug.] 17th [1847]: “Early this morning Mr. Alexander came down and accompanied me to his house. The sun was just rising and morning cool; found them all well, Mr. Paris from Hilo was there. Mrs. Archibald passed the afternoon with her husband, both pleasant and well informed. Mrs. Dibble and Clark — came from Wailuku and Dr. Baldwin called, there was not much time for conversation. All was confusion, took tea and then returned, Mr. Alexander with me who is very intelligent and agreeable. Found Capt. Fisher here who spent the evening.”

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] AUGUST 17 [1858]: “Thick, foggy, and drizzly for most of the day. Lowered one boat in the forenoon without success. P.M. Captain Curry of the James Maury came on board for a few minutes. He has taken five whales in all, three up here. Stowed down some of the oil that we had on deck, about 60 barrels. A little land bird flew on board this P.M. which I put in my bird cage and carried on deck, thinking it might be too warm for him in the cabin. He appeared very well, but in a few hours he died. He is the second one that I have tried this season, and now I shall give it up for this voyage.”

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