The following article about the ship Louis Philippe appeared in the NY Herald, July 16, 1849.

“We referred yesterday to the departure of the ship Louis Philippe, for San Francisco. The ship was towed out of the river at one o’clock, by the steamer Relief, and was left at four o’clock last evening off Swan’s Point. Probably no vessel has left for California since the discovery of the gold mines, under more favorable auspices. The ship was formerly a New York and Havre packet, and has every requisite for the accommodation of passengers. Much has been done by her owner, Capt. R.V. Fitzgerald, to secure the comfort of those who go out in her. Her cargo is valued at about $120,000, and consists of the frames of sixty-four houses, ready to be put up on arrival, and a large assortment of American merchandize. It was shipped mostly by the passengers. The freight list and passage and money amount t0 about $38,000.” (from the Baltimore Patriot, July 12, 1849)
