19th December [1847 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [Dec.] 19th [1847]: “Blowing fresh from the NW with pleasant weather. Saw a ship to far off to make her out., bound South. Latter wind light from WNW and overcast. Have been busy all day in looking over our papers. The war with Mexico seems to afford a topic for printing and was about the whole the papers contained. All the advertisements was scanned — nothing of note about the little village of Stonington [CT] save the report of a few ships which belonged there which news when read by said owners could not have been very cheering.”

Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries from Dec. 1 – 24, 1858.

Eliza Williams, [Thurs.] December 19th [1860]: “It has been a very fine day with splendid sunshine. It is about the same every day with scarce rain. The Callao has come in today and anchored, Capt. Fuller. My Husband has been aboard of her — also the Europa, Capt. Manter. He got Sandwich papers as late as November.”
