27th September [1848 and 1859]

Mary Brewster, WEDNESDAY [Sept.] 27th [1848]: “Light wind from NE with thick unpleasant weather. We are getting into cold weather, and rugged withal — doors and windows are no longer open and a great part of the time I am alone. Get tired of sewing, then read, soon the book is thrown aside and something resumed in its place, so passes the days —   LONG. 3.25.”

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] SEPTEMBER 27 [1859]: “Commenced boiling today. Two ships in sight. Almost or quite a dead calm. Saw whales in the afternoon; chased for some time, but as there was no wind, the boats could not get near them.”

Eliza Williams did not make a journal entry for this date in 1861.
