December 16 [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY [Dec.] 16th [1847]: “Light winds. Steering north. Commenced standing mastheads hoping to see a sperm whale before long. Squalls are not over yet I find, and are constantly visiting us. Oh for settled weather.   LAT. 48.49   LONG. 58.58.”

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

Eliza Williams, [Mon.] December 16th [1860]: “It has been a beautiful day. My Husband, Willie and I have been aboard of the Speedwell to see Capt. G. and Wife. All the captains were there a short time. They have been in the same Ship one voyage before. They have no Children. They have a fine Ship, a nice Cabin and a nice quarterdeck. We spent the day with them, and enjoyed it very much indeed. Their Ship is now under way. They are  going home and are going to cuise on their way.”
