July 7, 1849

Mary Brewster, SATURDAY [JULY] 7th [1849]: “Clear weather wind blowing fresh. Saw 5 whaleships 3 boiling. Saw whale but it was too rugged to lower. Later wind from NNW. At 3 PM tacked ship heading off shore — there is not much danger of getting ashore save when thick as it is light all night — LAT. 64.56     LONG. 170.20.”

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.
