January 28 [1859 and 1861]

Mary Brewster did not make a journal entry for this date in 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] JANUARY 28 [1859]: “Captain Weeks and family passed the day with us today. Set the signal for Captain may to come and dine with us, but he did not come. From the appearance of his ship we judged that he was stowing down.”

Eliza Williams, [Wed.] January 28th [1861]: “All three ships are boiling today. We are also calking decks, and consequently are dirty enough. Willie has a good time with it all, and between the Oil and Tar, I can’t keep him clean an hour.”
