April 5 [1849 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY APRIL 5th [1849]: “Our fine weather disappeared and we have had strong gales with bad sea and the last four days has been truly very uncomfortably passed. One night the wind blew so we were obliged to lay too for the night [in] thick dark unpleasant weather. Today it has been calm. The Cossack is near to us and it has been a change to have her to look at and know we are not alone.   LAT. 29.55   LONG. 127.50.”

Mary Lawrence, [Thurs.] APRIL 5 [1860]: “Fine weather in the morning. Saw a ship steering to the northward. Towards night a strong breeze sprang up from the south, which soon amounted to a gale, so that we were obliged to lie to through the night. Made 56 miles the last twenty-four hours.”
