5th December [1847 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [Dec.] 5th [1847]: “Fresh breezes from W and rainy weather. Employed most of the day in writing to some of my Sandwich Island friends hoping to see a ship bound that way. Latter fresh winds from SW and very rugged.   LAT. 55.50   LONG. 83.37.”

Part 6 (of 7) – Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] NOVEMBER 30 [1858] continued: “… While in port, Mr. Damon proposed to me that the wives of captains in port should contribute towards purchasing new carpet for the Bethel Church, which was very much needed. He wished me to mention it to the ladies, which I did with assistance of Mrs. Captain Swain and succeeded in collecting $70, which will probably be sufficient for recarpeting the church….”

Eliza Williams did not make a journal entry for this date in 1860.
