29th November [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, MONDAY [Dec.] 29th [1847]: “Commences with light winds from the NW and cloudy — Middle calm and rainy — Latter light winds from NE and thick weather. Towards night a large school of Blackfish and birds of any quantity if not of a great variety…”

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, [Fri.] November 29th [1860]: “It was foggy all night and till three O’clock in the morning when it cleared away very fine and has remained so all day. Just at night yesterday, we raised the land. We are now running along the coast to San Francisco. It has been nearly calm all day, and we have gained but little. We are now about 20 miles from the Harbour. Have seen quite a number of small Crafts today.”
