May 4, 1859

Mary Brewster’s journal for her voyage from 1845 – 1848 ended on March 8, 1848 when the Tiger arrived home (Stonington, CT). Mary and her husband, Samuel did not return to sea for their last voyage until June 1848. However, Mary’s journal-writing did not resume until July 13, 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] May 4 [1859]: “Moderated a little in the morning but soon came on again with increasing fury, a slight specimen of the weather we shall enjoy this season, with an occasional change to fogs. To pass away the time, as the deadlights were shut in the cabin making it dark and gloomy, I seated myself on my bed and commenced working Samuel a pair of slippers.” 

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries from Feb. 27 – May 7, 1861. Eliza’s future journal entries will be posted on May 8, 10, 11, 13.
