21st September [1859 and 1861]

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries on September 21 and 22, 1859.

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] SEPTEMBER 21 [1859]: “More like good weather than anything we have seen, although the sea has not yet gone down. Spoke the William Rotch in the afternoon. Captain Ellison said that he had seen several whales through the day; but we saw nothing, although we cruised over a great deal of ground. After tea raised the Rambler with a whale alongside. We did not really envy him, but we wanted one too.

Eliza Williams, [Sun.] September 21st [1861]: “It has been a pleasant day and a strong breeze. We have been going right along, we are preparing to take the benefit of all the wind we can get between this and our port. We have been reaving new rigging and bending new sails. I expect we will go right along when we get once started for Port and will not be long going.”
