HI! My name is Brittany . I am getting paid to get transferred to America. I hope to find the labor and send money back to my family.
I have just arrived to San Fransisco, CA! After these long 60 days of travel i am homesick and tired but that wont stop me.
I praise you chinese immigrants as one of the most worthy classes of newley adopted citizens!
Since I am a young man I am able to work long hard hours by helping to build the Continental railroad. It's hard work but I am getting paid the same as the American workers.
Here is where we live. We live in the Chinatown part of hte city once i come back from working on the railroad. It is the closest feeling to home.
In 1882 America made it harder for this family with racism. The US passed the CHinese Exclusion Act which reinforced those who wished to do harm that we were lesser person than a true american.
