July 22, 1849

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [July] 22nd [1849]: “I have tried to read — but my mind has been after whale all day. The boats have chased and that is all we know — never get full this season without they work quicker & faster. It is aggravating to see so many whale and such beautiful weather and such poor whalemen. Ships in sight; we are at anchor & boiling.”

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 Brewster did not make a journal entry for July 19, 1849.
