July 26, 1849

Mary Brewster, THURSDAY JULY 26th [1849]: “The last few days have been at anchor — got the oil stowed down and yesterday spent a great part of the day in fixing the windlass — Up with anchor and stood in shore. Snow nearly all gone the last week and I could see some green in the valleys. This afternoon got a whale; 9 ships in sight boiling. Fine weather; wind from South –“

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 did not make any journal entries for July 27, 29, 31, 1849.
