September 14 [1848 and 1859]

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY [Sept.] 14, 1848: “The trades have left us and we have a fine breeze from NE with a smooth sea. Saw a sail yesterday bound South, soon out of sight though, we have a glance and then they are gone. All sail out steering SSE.   LAT. 26.25”

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] SEPTEMBER 14 [1859]: “A gale of wind and thick for the most part of the day. We are now on our way towards St. Paul, having seen nothing in the vicinity of Gore’s Island. Spoke the George in the forenoon. Captain Silva told us that he saw a right whale in the morning close by his ship, so near that they gallied him. That is encouraging if we could only have decent weather; but as it has been, we could do nothing were there plenty of whales here.”

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