June 12, 1860

Mary Brewster did not make a journal entry for this date in 1849. Mary Brewster’s remaining journal entries for this month were made for June 15, 17; 21-27; 29-30.


Mary Lawrence, [Tues.] June 12 [1860]: “The wind fair on the morning but almost a dead calm. However, that is better than a head wind. Samuel set the thirteenth a long time ago to get in, and I will hold on to that a few hours longer. In the afternoon towards night the wind breezed up from the right direction, which gladdened us all. Saw several vessels during the day. Samuel thinks if this winds holds we shall make Block Island in the morning and get in by afternoon. “
