15th June 1849

Mary Brewster, FRIDAY [June] 15th [1849]: “The weather is beautiful but the wind is so light we make very little progress — For a change the boats have been lowered and Mr. B. with some of the officers have been gunning. Got a number of ducks, they are good eating and the amusement serves to drive dull care away — We have lowered for whale several times of late but have only our 30 bbl [barrel] whale.”

Mary Brewster’s remaining journal entries for this month were made on June 17; 21-27; 29-30 of 1849.


Finally, after a voyage that lasted nearly four years, Mary Lawrence’s husband’s ship arrived at New Bedford at daylight on June 14, 1860.
