9th September 1849

Mary Brewster, SUNDAY [Sept.] 9th [1899]: “A gale of wind for two days and it was rugged enough — All day calm and heavy swell, a light puff of wind occasionally, wind from SSW and unpleasant enough. Ship acts badly owing I suppose to all the oil being in the lower hole [hold] — Wind fair, it is roll roll — ahead, pitch pitch. Well, it can’t be helped.”


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