June 5, 1861

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during June 1861. She made the following entry for [Fri.] June 5th [1861]: “It has been foggy most all day but cleared up about 4 O’clock. About that time we raised Right Whales — three. My Husband and the first Mate lowered first. Soon after, the other boats lowered. My Husband was in the first Mate’s boat and got a chance to shoot at the Whale under water. The Iron did not go into him, so no Whale today. The [smaller whale] boats have come aboard.”  

Mary Lawrence, did not make a journal entry for this date in 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. Therefore, Mary Brewster’s entries will resume on this blog starting July 13, 2013.
