12th June [1859 and 1861]

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during June 1861. On Friday, June 12th she wrote: “We are now in the Okhotsk Sea, bound to what the Whalemen call the Weed Ground — a place where Whales have been seen plentifully.” 

Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] June 12 [1859]: “Another dead calm. Land nearly covered in snow is visible all along the coast, some being very high.”

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.
