June 6 [1849 and 1860]

Mary Brewster, WEDNESDAY [JUNE] 6th [1849]: “Wind blown quite fresh and our hopes have been realized — we have got a large whale which will make 200 bbls [barrels] — but it took them so long to kill it that the weather got extremely rugged and it was impossible to cut in, got it alongside surging away. Ends with a very bad sea –“

During the month of June, Mary Brewster made additional journal entries for June 7-8; 15, 17; 21-27; 29-30.

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] June 6 [1860]: “Some rainy and quite cool today. Saw two ships and a schooner. Spent most of the day in sewing. Made 180 miles today. A strong breeze and quite rugged.”
