October 26, 1847

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [October] 26th [1847]: “Less sea and wind more favorable — have been busy putting up things and getting settled for rough weather. Feel quite pleased with my room which is thus ornamented: 2 large bunches of ripe bananas are hung up, a number of pineapples, a net of oranges, one of lemons — and a string of oranges hung up by the stems raching nearly the length of the [deck] house — Mr. B. dipping deeply in egg basket — Eggnog, twice a day. For our dinner roast turkey fore and aft, stewed fowls, so ends the day.   LAT. 21.37   LONG. 161.99 West.”

Mary Lawrence (1858) and Eliza Williams (1860) did not make a journal entry for this date in their respective years.
