1st-3rd April 1860

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries between April 1-4, 1849.


Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] APRIL 1 [1860]: “Minnie had been making great dependence upon this day [April Fool’s Day] and was bitterly disappointed that it came on a Sunday, but she had made arrangements with some of the officers to postpone it until tomorrow. Fine weather in the morning with a head wind. One or two snow squalls in the afternoon; head winds and calms during the day. Made 100 miles on our course for the last forty-eight hours.”


Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] APRIL 2 [1860]: “Fine weather but calm for most the of the day. Towards night a slight breeze sprang up from the north. Had a very nice day for washing, much finer than we could reasonably expect in this region. Made 44 miles the last twenty-four hours.”


Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] APRIL 3 [1860]: “Weather the same as yesterday. Raised a ship on our weather bow apparently steering to the north, a welcome sight. We have been alone on the deep, as it were, for several weeks. Made 86 miles in twenty-four hours.”
