September 10 [1858 and 1860]

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

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] SEPTEMBER 10 [1858]: “A dead calm. For the most of the day we have been moving quite lazily along, quite a contrast to the way our gallant Addison tripped over the waters yesterday. Two ships in sight, one the Japan, the other name unknown. We heard a report a few days since that Captain Grandsaigne of the French ship Nil was dead and that Captain Morel, formerly of the Napoleon 3rd, had taken command of her. He was quite unwell when we saw him, and the report may be true.”

Eliza Williams, [Mon.] September 10 [1860]: “It has been a pleasant day. The boats have been off, but have returned without seeing any Whales. We spoke the Lancaster, Capt. Russell, today. He has been aboard to see us. He has his Wife and little Boy wit him. He did not fetch them aboard with him, for his Wife is not well. Her lungs are very much affected, and she is careful about going in the air. They have not done well this season. Have taken about 300 bbls [barrels] of Oil.”
