November 4 [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 4th [1847]: “Ship heading S by East with light winds and very pleasant. Spoke ship Benjamin Morgan of New London [CT] Capt. Bellows 16 mos. 2,500 [sperm oil, whale oil, and whale bone]. Capt. B. spent the day on board and stopped till 9 in the evening. He is bound to Chili [Chile] and expects to be home in May.   LAT. 30.56   LONG. 165.15”

Mary Lawrence (1858) made no journal entries between October 16 – November 29, 1858; while staying at Honolulu.

Eliza Williams, [Sun.], November 4th [1860]: “It has been a very pleasant day — a strong breeze but not nearly so rugged as yesterday. I have been on deck to walk a short time. Willie [her 20 month-old son; born at sea] and I both enjoyed the nice, cold bracing air, for we had been cooped up below for two days. I have some new Pets to take care of now. Mr. Bradford gave me two Canaries; one of them a fine singer. Willie is much pleased with them.”
