March 7 [1848 and 1859]

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [Mar.] 7th [1848]: “The weather rugged till 10, when it became calm. At 12, a breeze sprung up from SE and all sail is set — The best men are to steer through the night and we are in hopes this breeze will carry us to our anchorage [at Stonington, CT]. It is now ten o’clock and we are just in from the deck. It is a fine evening and very smooth. Ship going 5 knots.   LAT. 38.50   LONG. 70.38 West.”

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] MARCH 7 [1859]: “Captain Jernegan and Captain Lester left today. Captain Jernegan did not succeed in finding his men. After dinner Samuel, Minnie, and myself went on board the Reindeer, stopped there about two hours, then went on board the Rambler to tea. Captain and Mrs. Ashley went also and passed the evening.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from Feb. 27 – Mar. 25, 1861.
