cruising...

i've googled, and i can't find a specific answer - i've read some travel diaries, which narrowed it down to "somewhere between ten days and nearly a month, depending..."

i'd like to know how long it would take a steamship, mostly cargo, some passengers, to sail from yokohama to san francisco, c. 1910. it's not specifically a passenger ship, so it's not built for speed...

i probably don't need a very exact time-frame, but, damn it, NOW I WANT TO KNOW!!
