History

17 Sept 1854 - San Jose to SF stage line, via Oakland and SJ to SF:

In 1850 it took $6000 to get to Panama, $10,000 to get to New York. (In steerage, just $5,000.)

This article made a lot of sense in 1850, less so now:

The fourth big San Francisco Fire was on Sept 17, 1850.

Always be sure to put out your friend's burning barrel of gunpowder:
