July 8, 1861

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during July 1861. On July 8th, 1861; Mary wrote: “It has been quite an unpleasant day, a strong breeze and quite rainy. Early this morning, it was quite pleasant and sent boats ashore to look for water, but found the place a bad one to get the water and will not get it yet.”

Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries from July 8 – 12, 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.
