February 5, 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 Brewster did not make any journal entries from February 4 – 6, 1849.


Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] February 5 [1860]: “Nothing of note occurred during the week now past. We are having a long passage. When there is a breeze, we have always been favored with a head wind. Saw a brig several days since supposed to be bound into one of the New Zealand ports. The weather has been pleasant for the last week. Today we have a strong breeze amounting to a gale.”
