Emmett Hunt's Diary Entry January 28, 1891

Nice, calm, quiet day.  In morn ran out and towed in the sand scow, and in getting away from it got a hole stove in our starboard side just at waters line -- trimmed her heavily to port and ran to shipyard and got patched up again.

Emmett Hunt's Diary Entry January 21, 1891

Calm and mild.  Well!  got to bed last night at 1:30 this morning -- nice time to expect to start out again at 7 --- we didn't expect it nor didn't go till ten.  Then Mollie went with us and now after 8 hrs towing on said 6 sections from B. Cove we tie up at Dexter Horton & Co.s brickyard in West Passage and shall sleep.

A trifle warmer after some rain last night.  Steamed to Clay Wks with scow and waited while it was loaded then boot it back to the City.

Emmett Hunt's Diary Entry, January 7, 1891

Nice chilly morn -- later some thick fog -- then fair again.  Pulled out at 9:00 and tied up at 1.  Then fooled with Dug's logs awhile --- after which pulled the Mollie Blieker off the mud and quit.
