July 5, 1849

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY [JULY] 5th [1849]: “The sound of the windlass and heave ho was what I heard early this morning; we should soon be underway. I got up to see how we should get out of the bay — succeeded in keeping clear of the ice and by 10 were clear of it all — and have seen none through the day — I hope we shall see no more — The Plover has been in company all day but wonderful to tell our ship sails faster tho’ we have less sail set — At 6 PM came in thick fog the Plover was then about a mile off — thick and calm — weather moderately warm —   LONG. 172.25.”

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.
