December 14 [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [Dec.] 14th [1847]: “Wind light and baffling, making but little progress. Spoke a French Barque, Milan from Lima of & bound to Bordeaux. They seemed in a great hurry and we could hardly hear what he had to say before she passed us with studding sails out. At dark she was out of sight. Saw finbacks during the day.   LAT by Act 53.40   LONG. 63 — “

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

Eliza Williams, [Sat.] December 14th [1860]: Have had a very fine day. I have been on shore a little while this afternoon with my Husband and Willie. We enjoyed it very much. It was a nice place where we landed, a good dry Beach. We have a nice run on the Beach. It is like all the rest — very barren. The Bay abounds in Fish or various kinds — very nice Turtle, Clams, and Oysters. We had a nice sail and returned to the Ship, Willie quite tired with his run and glad to go to sleep. Captain Winslow was ashore and gathered some nice moss for me.”
