3rd September [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, SEPTEMBER FRIDAY 3rd [1847]: “Here I am in the far-famed city of Honolulu. I arrived about 12 AM in the schooner, Dr. Winslow waited upon me with little Charles. We had a pleasant passage, started about 7, last evening, had it calm a great part of the night or we should have been in early this morning. Husband came aboard and we left before the schooner came to anchor, he had obtained a room where we stop a week or so and take our meals at Capt. Makee’s. After going through the fuss of dressing we went up to dinner and was introduced to lots of individuals, Mrs. Greene of the ship Ontario, Mrs. Smith of the Saratoga, and gentlemen any quantity, among them Capt. Hubbard from Stonington who met with the misfortune on the north west, that of breaking his leg. He starts next week for home — Afternoon Mrs. Gelett called with many others. This evening one of the officers of the Cyanne was here to tea, his bright buttons was particularly attractive, in conversation rather interesting. My first impression — Oahu very pleasant, and I am certain to think my stop here will be very pleasant.”

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] SEPTEMBER 3 [1858]: “A thick fog until noon, when it cleared away quite pleasant. Saw the Emerald once during the day at a distance. Saw no whales. We have been very near the barrier, although we did not see it, as it was thick; but Captain Hallock says he was close by it the day that we gammed.”

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