13 September [1859 and 1861]

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries for September 11-13, 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] SEPTEMBER 13 [1859]: “Spoke the George in the morning. Captain Silva came on board and passed the day. Another bark in sight in the afternoon. We lay back for her to come down to us. Found her to be the Pioneer. Captain Barker came on board and passed the afternoon. Learned form him that Mrs. Bryant of the America was quite seriously injured by the hog house fetching way and pressing her up against the side of the ship while they were cutting in a whale. Mrs. Baker went on board and stopped a day or two with her, and then Captain Bryant put away for the Islands, so that I fear it was serious injury. We were also sorry to learn by him that the Julian had been quite badly stoven [damaged] in the ice; had taken a nothing. Captain Barker hails one mussel digger as his season’s work. We had before learned that the Neva was badly stoven. He confirms the report. She is two years out without a drop of oil. What are we all coming to? And what are the owners going to do? They must stink an enormous amount of money from the catchings of the last two seasons. The Good Return was ashore a day or two before we left Cape Lisburne but got off without injury.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries from September 13-19, 1861.
