19th September 1859

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

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] SEPTEMBER 19 [1859]: “Spoke the Rambler this morning. We did not gam, as both hoped to see whales and the wind breezed on quite strong. After dinner, however, not seeing any whales, Captain Willis ran down to us, lowered his boat, and came on board. He said I must see how much he wanted to see us to come on board in such a strong breeze, almost too much for whaling. He left the Arctic the fifteenth; had taken nothing since we saw him. He hopes to get a whale or two here, and I hope he may, providing we can do the same. He brought me a box of eggs, which I was pleased with. He did not stop to tea, as it was getting to be very rugged, and I was very glad to see him safely landed on board the Rambler. At such times I always think of the sad fate of Captain Lamphier and his boat’s crews, who were lost on returning to their ship. Saw no whales during the day.”

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