September 6, 1859

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

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] SEPTEMBER 6 [1859]: “Spoke the Cleone this morning. Captain Simmons informed us that he picked up our boat. Samuel went on board to see about it; found that he picked it up, found it stoven very badly, attempted to tow it, and it broke in two. He took the other part in, but Samuel did not think it worth taking, so left it with Captain Simmons for firewood. There was no gun in it when he found it. Probably it was loose in the boat and was lost when she capsized. Captain Simmons returned with Samuel and passed the day with us, as it was calm so that we could go nowhere to look for whales. After dinner Captain Jones of the George and Susan came on board, and before supper we had an addition to our company of Captain Tinker of the Moctezuma. He is cousin of Mercy’s and has visited Falmouth since we left home. They left about 9 P.M. Captain Tinker sent us pickled halibut and some onions, which were very acceptable. Captain Simmons has taken three whales; the other captains, two each.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries on September 6-7, 1861.
