Isaac and Mary Stearns decided to not join the main meal gathering of the Captains and consorts from the Ambrose and Jewell that came aboard the Arbella while at anchor. The Captain of the Arbella Fleet decided that with the small gale and fair weather little progress would be made to their new home. They had not seen the Talbot since the storm and this would give her time to reach them.
Isaac and Mary stayed in the women’s cabins to care for Shubael and Martha who remain in poor health.
