On November 22, 1915, one of the handsomest four-masters afloat was the new schooner "Carl F. Cressey," arrived in the Portland, Maine, harbor from Jacksonville, Florida, with a cargo of hard pine. Inasmuch as the "Dustin Cressey" and the "Carl Cressey" are both destined for the Deering-Winslow Company, and as another schooner is already in there discharging, it looks like a sort of lay-off for the people on the two 'Cresseys" But the "Carl Cressey" with her fresh, clean paint, her white masts and bright rigging presents a marine picture, the like of which is not often seen.
