July 10, 1861

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries during July 1861. Eliza wrote: [Fri.] July 10th [1861]: “We let go the anchor last night in 16 fathoms of water, and about 15 miles from the other ships. It has been a fine day. The boats have been off looking for whales. Jamskaia Bay [east coast of Russia; west of Kamchatka Peninsula], I think, is very well in fine weather, like today, but I should not like to spend my days here. There is a town by the same name, some miles off; they say it quite a place.”

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.
