16th February 1849

Through most of 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, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 16th [1849]: “Bound to Guam and I fear shall be for some time. The wind had died away and there is not air enough to keep the sails from flapping, calm and smooth ends [the day].”

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