11th November [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY [Nov.] 11th [1847]: “Very strong breezes all day. This evening wind freshened with heavy squalls, Took in studding sails, foretopgallant sail and double reefed topsails. Steering E by South. Saw a right whale.   LAT. 40.20   LONG. 157.02”

While staying at Honolulu for six weeks, Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries from October 16 – November 29, 1858. Her journal entries will resume on Nov. 30.


Eliza Williams, [Sun.] November 11th [1860]: “A very bad day indeed. The wind blew fearfully all night and day today, the water coming over onto the deck quite badly and some of the time below a little. All is confusion; everything that can get loose is sliding about the Ship. It is a head wind, which is worse than all, and it is still increasing.”
