Mary Lawrence, [Sat.] OCTOBER 22 [1859]: “Pleasant as yesterday with a nice breeze. All hands been variously employed. I stood at my ironing table nearly all day doing up skirts, dresses, shirts, spencers, collars, drawers, etc., etc. They helped John Adams on deck after dinner to bask in the sunshine for a little while. He seemed to enjoy it very much and thought he felt better for it. Took Susie on deck again.”
