May 8, 1861

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. Therefore, Mary Brewster’s entries will resume on this blog starting July 13, 2013.

Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries for May 7-8, 1859. She made a journal entry for May 9, skipped May 10, and then maintained daily entries between May 11 – 26, 1859

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries from Feb. 27 – May 7, 1861. On Wednesday, May 8, 1861 Eliza wrote: “It has been cloudy and some rainy all day, and there is a head wind now. The Island of Niphon is now in sight. We will soon be in Hakodadi [Japan], if this head wind does not last.”
