June 21 [1859 and 1861]

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during June 1861. For [Sun.] June 21st, Eliza wrote: “It has been a fine day with the exception of early this morning, when it was quite foggy. When the fog lit up, the bark Florence was close by. We spoke her and Captain Spencer came aboard to breakfast. He has just gone this evening. We had potatoes for him from the Islands. He brought us some fine oranges. He has got about 1200 bbls [barrels] of oil in the Japan Sea. He has seen and been aboard the Othello and the South Boston lately.”

Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] June 21 [1859]: “Calm. Captain Winegar and Sammy came on board in the afternoon and stopped until 9 P.M.”

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.
