December 10 [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, FRIDAY [Dec.] 10th [1847]: “Squally with rain hail sleet, cold fingers and feet. Made the Diegos [Diego Ramirez] about 7 this evening, distance about 25 m [about sixty miles from Cape Horn] — on our lea beam, kept the ship NE, which is to be our course. All seem to be in good spirits in anticipation of soon getting into good weather. The past three weeks have been particularly disagreeable. A few days with good wind will bring us in pleasanter weather.   LAT. 56. 43   LONG. at 3 70.15.”

Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries between December 1 – 24, 1858.

Eliza Williams, [Tues.] December 10th [1860]: “It has been a very fine day, and I have been washing. Mrs. Fish has been washing, too, so she has not been aboard to see me but will probably come tomorrow. The Captain and his little Boy were aboard a few minutes this morning. The Bark Isabelle came to anchor last night, Capt. Tucker. A French Ship passed the Bay about the same time. She was coming in, but seeing several here, kept her course.”
