November 23, 1848

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries between November 19-22, 1848. Mary’s journal entries will resume on Saturday, November 23, 2013. Additionally, her journal entries through December 19th [1848] were sporadic. Therefore, I will not resume daily blog posts until on/or about December 1.

Mary Brewster wrote: “THURSDAY NOVEMBER 23 [1848]. Weather very pleasant with smooth sea. The oil is all stowed down and decks cleared. Ends calm.   LAT. 37.18   LONG. 100.13.”

Remaining 1848 journal entries of Mary Brewster will be posted November 25 and 27th; December 9-10th; 19, 22, 24-25; 27-31.

Mary Lawrence’s did not make any entries from 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.

Mary Lawrence’s next journal entry will be posted on December 2. For the remaining month of December, there are only seven additional entries; Dec. 23-28; and December 31, 1859.
