July 1, 1849

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [July] 1st [1849]: “Thick weather with a light rain. Ice is fast disappearing. The ship Plover, Capt. Moore, got up today; came to anchor close to us. Mr. B. went on board at 11 this evening, has not got back — I hope he will enjoy himself; prospect is flattering.”

NOTE: During July 1849, while in the Bering Sea, Mary Brewster made daily journal entries through July 18th. After that, her entries were more sporadic.


Mary Lawrence’s husband’s ship, the Addison arrived at her homeport of New Bedford, MA at sunrise on June 14, 1860
