A challenge for clarity

I was separating out my first ten pages of Book 1 today to start submitting to potential publishers (yes, it is time to start praying for me friends) and I was challenged for details on how Portia left New York by ship and landed in London.
So, to clarify, she took the S.S. Minnetonka II from NY to London on January 18, 1929. How can I be so exacting with my times? Glad you asked, because you wouldn’t BELIEVE the detail you can get from the internet.
This is a listing of ships that left New York bound for London in 1929 and this is some photos and details about the Minnetonka!

It is amazing how much information you can find at the tip of your fingers!
Back to editing… yes, I’ve read these ten pages 100 times, yes, I must read them 100 more times…
