16th July 1861

Mary Brewster wrote on July 13, her first entry in several months, that during this voyage….”It is not my intention to keep a daily account during the passage as it is tedious and uninteresting….”  Therefore, true to her word, Mary did not make any journal entries from July 14 through July 17, 1848. Her next entry for 1848, was made on Tuesday, July 18th. That means the entry will appear here Thursday, July 18, 2013.

Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries from July 14 – 17, 1859.

Eliza Williams, [Thurs.] July 16th [1861]: “It has been a splendid day, warm and the Bay smooth and nice. Early this morning, Capt. Randolph and my husband went to the town; they have not returned yet. I expect them soon; do not know why they do not get along. It is now past 7 o’clock but it is a long ways where they have gone.”
