SHIPPING & HANDLING: Shipping is subject to a minimum charge of $19.00. Shipping and handling cannot be estimated prior to invoicing as it is based on the size and weight of your purchase. Additional shipping and handling costs, if required, will be re-invoiced for the balance due. Items are not shipped until the invoice is completely paid. Many buyers purchase a number of lots. Every effort will be made to include all lots in a single shipping charge calculated to cover the weight and size.SH...
Office of the Shipping Commissioner of San Francisco, State of California, March 4th, 1873...
This document is an agreement between the Masters and Seamen or Mariners of the ship [illegible] California bound for Guaymas for a term of six months. It lists on two pages the names and physical characteristics of the entire crew, their wages per month, and their capacity on the vessel. Page 1 is 22 x 30-1/2 inches, and page 2 is half that length. Interesting to note that the first name on the list is the Captain who is paid $80 per month, and the second line is the 1st Mate who is paid $100 per month. On down the list is the Chief Engineer paid at $150 per month, the highest paid man on board. An amazing piece of 19th century maritime history.
