February 5 [1848 and 1859]

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY [Feb.] 5th [1848]: “Crossed the line [equator] today and we are once more in north latitude. We have not had a calm as we always have before at such time. The wind has blown strong all day with hard rain showers. I now begin to think of home and native land and say with truth, I long to hear the Ocean’s foam Dash on my native strand I long to breathe the gales that come From my own fatherland. Ends with the wind from the East. All sail out steering NW by N.   LAT. 1.9 N   LONG. 56.34.”

Mary Lawrence, [Sat.] FEBRUARY 5 [1859]: “Captain Weeks and family passed the day with us. Had a pleasant time, as we usually do.”

Eliza Williams did not make a journal entry for this date in 1861.
