The famine disease is getting bad here, I think we should move to America for better opportunities and before one of us gets sick.
I agree, moving to America sounds like a good idea!
I can't wait to get to America and get off this boat!
In Ireland there was very bad disease happening causing people to move away. Poverty in Ireland also caused people to move.
The Irish couple takes a boat to America, with many other people that are immigrating to America.
I'm so tired of working in the factory, I wish I could have a different job.
The conditions on the boat were not very good. They had to stay at the bottom of the boat where many people got sick.
Living in America is hard...
Most Irish men built canals as their job in America. The working conditions were not good and many of them died because of the dangerous conditions.
Working in a factory was a hard job and had very bad conditions. There were long work hours, low income, and the places were not safe to work at. A lot of Irish women also worked as servants.
