May 20, 1860

Mary Brewster did not make any journal entries between May 20 – 24, 1849.

NOTE: Mary Brewster’s journal entries the remaining days of May 1849 were sporadic; her next two entries after this date were not made until May 25-26. During the month of June she was more diligent; making entries June 1-3, 5-8, 15, 17, 21-27, 29-30.


Mary Lawrence, [Sun.] May 20 [1860]: “For the last week all have been very busy washing and painting the ship. Have had fine breezes since the fourteenth, except that we could not head just as we wished for three or four days. The wind is more free now, so that we have studding sails out and going along finely. Made 190 miles the last twenty-four hours and 920 miles the last week.”
