January 31, 1849

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 Brewster, WEDNESDAY [Jan.] 31st [1860]: “Doldrums — first a squall ending in a calm, then a large quantity of rain with sudden gusts of wind always heading North when wind will admit.   LAT. 10.35   LONG. 171.35”


Mary Lawrence did not make any journal entries between January 30-February 4, 1860.
