I just recently stumbled across this article about Love, Marriage, and Family in Nineteenth-Century Whaling Communities which quotes from the letters of Sylvia Tucker and John W. Leonard. An interesting look at the lives of our ancestors. Excerpts from the letters and another article are posted on my old homesickcure website under the link He Went Away : Love Letters from the Whaling Days.
