May 18 [1859 and 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, [Wed.] May 18 [1859]: “The wind has left us. In the morning a calm with a thick fog. When June come in, we hope for better weather. Foggy and rainy throughout the day.”

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during May 1861; [Mon.] May 18th [1861]: “We got under way about three O’clock last night — the South Boston at the same time.”
