8th July 1849

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [JULY] 8th [1849]: “Fresh wind throughout the day. Ship under reefed sails. Saw a large number of whale but it was too rough to lower — Saw 3 ships; two laying to, one at anchor. Spoke her; Frances Henrietta 1,150 barrels of oil. LAT. 65.9     LONG. 169.34.”

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.
