3rd June [1849 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [JUNE] 3rd [1849]: “Had company this afternoon. The two Capt. Winters and Drake of ship Washington — who I met with at Hilo 1847 — a great talker and very pleasant besides. They all left at 9 and the ships are all near together — quite to[o] near, for it is now calm but it is a beautiful light night and I think each one can skull his own ship and keep them apart — Thus ends Sunday. Our friends at home blessed with the privilege of going to church and I have the pleasure of entertaining company. I consider it no violation of the day. I wish we could see a new face often. It gives us new stimulus — we are not alone –.”

During the month of June, Mary Brewster made additional journal entries for June 5-8; 15, 17; 21-27; 29-30.


Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] June 3 [1860]: “Cloudy in the morning with occasional peals of thunder. Commenced raining about 10 A.M. and continued in showers throughout the day. Consequently could get no observations.”
