30th April 1860

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries between April 30 – May 8, 1849.


Mary Lawrence, [Mon.] APRIL 30 [1860]: “Saw a ship in the morning bound in an opposite direction from ourselves. Fine weather with strong trade winds. About noon saw another ship coming towards us. After dinner we passed. Samuel chalked our longitude on our waist, hoping she would notice it and do likewise, but she took no notice of it. We signalized and found her to be the Grimsbok (bark), of Boston, a very pretty craft. Made 188 miles the last twenty-four hours. About sunset passed within two miles of a large merchant ship bound through the Indian Ocean.”
