June 13, 1859

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during month of June 1861. She did not make a journal entry for June 13th.

Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] June 13 [1859]: “A strong breeze. A ship in sight at a distance. About 11 A.M. spoke the General Scott, Captain Huntting. Samuel went on board for a few minutes. They had taken nothing like many others, had been fast to a whale a few days previous that stove [destroyed] two boats, lost one man, etc.   P.M. The gale increasing so that after supper we lay to.”

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.
