3rd February 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, SATURDAY [Feb.] 3rd [1849]: “Weather quite pleasant, I have had the door and windows open and have got the [deck] house dry and settled. The decks have been filled up with sails which they have begun to mend, so I have not been [out] the last three days. Tonight weather looks more settled.”

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries from February 4 – 6, 1849.

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