Poor Ida. I have a place to go to and a husband waiting for me. Like that it will be easier to grow roots. Ida has a husband, a sick father and two small children. For them it must feel like jumping without knowing where they will land.
They say that in America the gold lies on the streets. I don't believe it. It won't be any different fromthe way it was in Switzerland. (I especially say Switzerland, not home. California is my home now.) If you want to achieve something, you've got to work for it. I'm willing to work hard for a bright future.
I know I will be happy. My husband and I will love each other and have many children. Our farm will be a success and maybe, one day, I'll be able to send some money to provide for my younger brothers and sisters at home - in Switzerland, I mean.
