28th August 1859

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries from August 17-September 4, 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] AUGUST 28 [1859]: “Light wind from the northeast and rainy. About noon a strong breeze sprang up. After dinner Captain Clark of the Bartholomew Gosnold came on board to learn the news. He had been off on an exploring expedition for the last ten days on the compass ground, off Point Hope, etc. Had seen nothing. He felt badly when he heard there had been a number of whales taken in the ice since he had been gone and was almost ready to exclaim with some of the rest of us, ‘Is there anything good for me?’ He stayed on board but a short time, and then we both worked in towards the ice.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from August 28-September 4, 1861.
