We have no food my love there is this potato famine our people are dealing with and for what just stay here and starve we must leave.
We are down here in this steerage cold and hungry with not even space to move. But at least were are going to a better place.
We settled in the Northeast states such as Boston, Baltimore,and Philadelphia.
Not only did we get very low pay my old self cannot take these railroad jobs and heavy duty canal building.
Even if the Americans wanted us out did't fight and come all this way to be kicked out we have worked to hard for them!!! Us Irish have worked hard to get to America so our living spaces are a bit small but these huts will do for my family.
