November 12, 1848

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY NOVEMBER 12th [1848]: “The last week has been a succession of pleasant days. A light breeze and calms. The ocean very smooth, weather warm and clear. Have seen no whales though all are anxious to raise [spot and hunt] some. Birds keep around us and serve to look at as a change from sky and water.   LAT. 35.59   LONG. 90.23”

Mary Lawrence’s journal entry for NOVEMBER 1, 1859 is three pages long (eleven paragraphs). Additionally, she did not make any entries between November 2 through December 1. Mary was silent and did not make another journal entry until the Addison left the port of Honolulu on December 2, 1859 for the final voyage toward home.
