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.
