The Russian exile Pitirim Alexandrovich Sorokin arrived in the United States on November 1, 1923 on the S. S. Martha Washington, which sailed from Trieste to Boston. After spending a few hours in Boston, where the ship first stopped, Sorokin proceeded by ship to New York City.
Note the date of arrival: November 1923 — not October, as Sorokin himself states, inaccurately, in his autobiography
