June 15, 1859

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during month of June 1861. She did not make a journal entry for June 15th.

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] June 15 [1859]: “A pleasant day. The Julian in sight. Saw them chasing whales several times during the day, but we saw nothing. I forgot to mention that they had been fast to a whale which stove two boats and then went off taking a large quantity of line.”

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.
