29th September [1859 and 1861]

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

Mary Lawrence, [Thurs.] SEPTEMBER 29 [1859]: “A strong breeze from the north; clear, bright weather. Plenty of finbacks in sight. They have probably driven the right whales farther north where we cannot go, as the wind is from that direction.”

Eliza Williams, [Mon.] September 29th [1861]: “Saw whales early this morning and sent the boats down but could not get near them. They are very wild and act as if they had been chased of late.”
