7th October [1848, 1859 and 1861]

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY [Oct.] 7th [1848]: “Weather much the same and blowing in hard squalls with some rain. The sails reefed, ship heading ESE. We are now past the cape [of Good Hope] and have experienced no heavy gales as yet though it is very rugged — In a few weeks we hope to see whales, and perhaps the season will decide the length of the voyage.   LAT. 37.39   LONG. 22.54.”

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] OCTOBER 7 [1859]: “The wind from the south the same as yesterday. At 6 P.M. the wind suddenly changed to the southeast and blew very hard from that quarter.”

Eliza Williams did not make any journal entries between October 5-7, 1861.
