19th May [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, [Thurs.] May 19 [1859]: “A strong breeze with squalls of wind accompanied by rain and hail. Saw two ships in the morning going on an opposite track from ourselves.”

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during May 1861; [Tue.] May 19th [1861]: “It has been a fine day and a very quiet one. Have not seen any Whales. We have got through the Straits and are now in the Japan Sea, with a good breeze. There is a Merchant Ship close by, bound, I suppose, the Amoor River. We have not seen the South Boston since we have been through the Straits.”
