August 31, 1858

Mary Brewster did not make a journal entry for this date in 1847.

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] AUGUST 31 [1858]: Pleasant the first part of the day; latter part cloudy and some rainy. Nothing in sight, either ships or whales, the first time we have been alone for many days. Saw land this forenoon, about thirty-five miles north of Cape Lisburne. We have another shore bird now — one of the boatsteerers caught one a few days ago — which resembles very much in appearance a snipe. So of course it is not a remarkably handsome bird, but as it would eat and drink, I thought I would put it in my cage to please Minnie. I do not anticipate any sweet notes from him.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from August 19-September 4, 1860.
