October 6 [1848 and 1858]

Mary Brewster, FRIDAY [Oct.] 6th [1848]: “Wind blowing very fresh from NW weather cold and cloudy throughout the day. At 5 took in and reefed sails, preparing for bad weather. Saw a ship ahead steering to the east.   LONG. 19.49”

Mary Lawrence, [Thurs.] OCTOBER 6 [1859]: “Last night the Addison barely managed to head her course, and now we can run no further, for we have a strong breeze from the south. Laying to.”

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