Agust 29, 1849

Mary Brewster, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 29th [1849]: “At 12, wind moderated, got the ship fixed so she would lay better. Sea continued short and bad. 6 AM wind hauled and continued to blow from SW to W. Set the foresail at 12, set the mizzen topsail trying to get under the land. ’10 o’clock’ weather improving, sea not so bad.”


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