10th July 1849

Mary Brewster, TUESDAY [JULY] 10th [1849]: “Wind blowing very fresh all from North beating away and making no progress. I am truly weary of this cruise. I hope the prospect will be brighter by & by; if this is not tedious I don’t know what is. So rugged nothing a-doing. Plenty of whale but can’t get any till more moderate and so it — Oh patience will have her perfect work this time — gentle breezes come from the south when we shall feel some better — Well we are not alone, we have seen 3 ships trying to get along and I find they can’t sail north when the wind is the same — I’m trying to be encouraged — LAT. 64”     58 LONG. —“

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.
