August 27, 1849

Mary Brewster, MONDAY August 27th [1849]: “Good weather most of the day. Lots of whale but did not lower — got as much as can be taken care of. Decks all full, grease and try smoke — Stowing down oil, after hatch broken out, all full of business — Weather is getting cooler and we have had several snow squalls — Ends rugged wind from South blowing hard.”


Mary Lawrence’s husband’s ship, the Addison arrived at her homeport of New Bedford, MA at sunrise on June 14, 1860.
