September 8 [1859 and 1861]

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

Mary Lawrence, [Thurs.] SEPTEMBER 8 [1859]: “A strong northerly gale through the night. About 9 A.M. squared the yards to go as far down as Cape Lisburne and farther still if we saw nothing. The consequence was that we saw nothing. About 3 P.M. raised two ships laying to. One of them kept off with us, and before night we raised another which we spoke just before dark. She proved to be the bark Emerald, Captain Pierce; nothing the season. That will hardly pay the expenses of a wife and two children in Honolulu.”

Eliza Williams, [Tues.] September 8th [1861]: “It has been a fine day. A strong breeze but not fair. We have given up going to Horse Shoe Bay for the present but are going in to Taovisty to get some water and see if there are any whales. We are almost in the Bay now at four o’clock. We can see a ship in the Bay from aloft. I have been on deck to walk for the first time for a week. Green Island and Fog Island were close by then.”
