Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 28., Old ships and Ship-building days of Medford. (search)

And this would probably have been the case if the discovery of gold in California and the consequent high prices had not made the question of speed of greater importance. The first vessel built in this part of the country on these ideas was the Game Cock, built by Samuel Hall at East Boston in 1850, and the same year James O.

She was one of twenty-six ships which made the passage twice from Boston or New York to San Francisco in less than 110 days average time (105 days from Boston and 115 days from New York, average 110 days).
