September 28 [1859 and 1861]

Mary Brewster did not make a journal entry for this date in 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] SEPTEMBER 28 [1859]: “Fine, pleasant weather. Saw one whale, but he came too near the ship before we saw him and gallied, or frightened, him.”

Eliza Williams, [Sun.] September 28th [1861]: “It has been a good deal more pleasant today, the wind has abated a good deal and the sea gone down considerable. We are now off Aloid Island. It is very high island and nearly round. The top is covered with snow and looks white enough. There has been a volcano on the island. We have not seen any whales except finbacks today.”
