15th September [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, WEDNESDAY [Sept.] 15th [1847]: “The last two days I have passed at Punahou with Mr. Dole andfamily. They have a fine situation and are a very pleasant family. He has charge of the children who belong to them mission and they are educated and under his care. He has an assistant Mr. Rice and lady, who teaches drawing. I visited the school and all the apartments belonging to the establishment — order and neatness with good judgement everywhere prevailed. Punahou is a mile and a half from Honolulu, situated on a level plain, commands a good view of the Ocean and the surrounding country. The children are separated from all evil influences and have excellent teachers and advice. They have a vacation once a year when they all go home. We rode up the valley some 6 miles, the scenery similar to the valleys on Maui, mountains covered with foliage and trees and streams flowing and passing through the ravines. I enjoyed my visit very much and was interested with all I saw — Mr. Dole & wife accompanied me home, husband having to leave about 2 — to see the ship. We arrived about sunset and they returned — “

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] SEPTEMBER 15 [1858]: “Foggy through the day, regular Arctic Ocean and Bristol Bay weather. Luffed to at noon to catch codfish but did not get a bite. Hope that we may be successful in taking a supply while here.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from Sept. 13 -16, 1860.
