April 13, 1860

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries for April 11-13, 1849.

***************

Mary Lawrence, [Fri.] APRIL 13 [1860]: “Light winds through the night, but a nice breeze during the day. Raised two ships in the morning bound in an opposite direction from ourselves, and about noon raised on bound as we are. Made 135 miles in the last twenty-four hours.”

NOTE: By 1st April, Mary Lawrence, her husband, and daughter were headed towards Cape Horn (southern-most tip of South America), and as indicated by her journal entries, it often took days or even weeks to get to and around the Horn. Every day, as Mary noted in her journal, she endured often unpredictable and horrible weather. For Mary, rounding Cape Horn this voyage took close to two weeks, between April 1-12, 1860.
