January 29, 1860

Mary Brewster did not make a journal entry for this date in 1860.

Through most of January 1849, Mary Brewster made nearly daily journal entries. However, most of them are very brief.  Oftentimes, Mary’s journal entries are reflective of 19th-century whaling ships’ logs entries that typically would have been made by the captain or first officer of the vessels.


Mary Lawrence, [Tue.] JANUARY 29 [1860]: “A fine day. The ship nearly heads her course for the first time in almost a week. Yesterday we had a large hog killed, and we all, fore and aft, have been indulging today in fresh pork.”
