Diary of Sarah Dexter, October 1892 - February 1893
Captain Daniel William Dexter often made three trips across the Atlantic per year, including winter trips, which were very cold and strained the mariners. Captain Dexter’s wife, Sarah Jemima Mosher (1842 - 1929), and their daughters, Rachel "Pauline" Dexter (born in Weymouth, Massachusetts 1870-1951) and Mabel Rose (born in Avondale 1872-1956), sometimes accompanied the Captain on his voyages. This copy of a copy of her diary, kindly shared by the Siler family, was recorded during a voyage from Nova Scotia to Belfast, Ireland and then on to Staten Island, New York, when Sarah was 50 years old.
