Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries for April 11-13, 1849.
Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] APRIL 11 : “Light winds again. We suppose ourselves to be today off the Diegos, a group of islands to the southwest of Cape Horn. Made 70 miles the last twenty-four hours.”

NOTE: By 1st April, Mary Lawrence, her husband, and daughter were headed towards Cape Horn (southern-most tip of South America), and as indicated by her journal entries, it often took days or even weeks to get to and around the Horn. Every day, as Mary noted in her journal, she endured often unpredictable and horrible weather. For Mary, rounding Cape Horn this voyage took close to two weeks, between April 1-12, 1860.
