October 2 [1858 and 1860]

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

Mary Lawrence, [Sat.] OCTOBER 2 [1858]: “Last night we had quite a shower of rain with thunder and lightening. I heard the thunder and saw the lightening from the cabin, as I was in bed, for the first time in the voyage. This morning it is clear, bright, and pleasant with mild breeze — so warm that we have no fire in the cabin and have open windows. Quite a contrast to the weather we have experienced for the last several months. It seems very delightful to us all.”

Eliza Williams, [Wed.] October 2 [1860]: “It has been a fine day. The Bark Maria Theresa and the Othello are in sight. My Husband went aboard the Maria Theresa, and when he got on board, he found out that she was the Othello, Capt. Hillmer.  Lewis [Capt. William’s brother] is aboard of her, and he went to see him. In the evening, they all came aboard to see me. They cheated me some. They did not fetch Lewis down in the Cabin but kept him back a few minutes. He then came down, and at first sight I did not know him. He has changed a good deal. We spent the evening very pleasantly. Tomorrow they will come aboard again.”
