28th March 1859

Since September 2010, this blog has attempted to give insight into the experiences of several ordinary women who lead extraordinary lives while living at sea during the nineteenth century. However, for March 28, only one of the three wives we have followed over the past few years made a journal entry: Mary Lawrence, 1859.

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] MARCH 28 [1859]: “Have had the benefit of the trades more or less for the last week. Are now within three or four days sail of the Islands, where we expect to receive tidings, either good or bad, from the loved at home. God grant that we may have strength given us to bear up under whatever we may be called upon to hear.”
