5th September [1859 and 1861]

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries from September 5-9, 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] SEPTEMBER 5 [1859]: “The gale increased through the night, and this morning it blows with redoubled fury. A gale so severe and so long as this we have not seen before this voyage. About noon it commenced moderating; the Polar Star close by us in the afternoon. There has been and is quite a heavy sea, but it is so short that it does not much affect the motion of a ship. She lay to very nicely. Saw one bowhead today.”

Eliza Williams [Sat.] September 5th [1861]: “It has been a fine day but almost calm a good part of the day. This morning, we were off Jamskaia [Yamsk], we are now off Cape called Piaghin. We will not be long in going to Horse Shoe Bay, if we have good winds. We have seen a few muscle diggers of this Cape.”
