15th September 1859

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries between September 15-19, 1848. 

Mary Lawrence, [Thurs.] SEPTEMBER 15 [1859]: “The gale still continues. Spoke the George in the morning. Captain Silva has got tired of the weather here and is now bound off. Samuel will try it here a little longer. I felt sorry to have him leave us, as he was the only one in sight and we have been among ships so long that it seems rather lonely to be left alone. In the afternoon raised two ships. One lay aback for us. We went down and were pleased to find it the Speedwell. Mrs. Gibbs and myself had another flourish of pocket handkerchiefs. As it was blowing a gale, we could do nothing else. Captain Gibbs left the Arctic the eighth and reports whales plenty where we are and plenty of bad weather. We had experienced the truth of his last statement and were very happy to hear the first. We immediately took in sail and lay to and before dark had the pleasure of seeing five or six whales.”

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