FC: My Polish Immigration
1: I have begun my journey to America, in 1834, with my brother.
2: I have left poland because the soil in our farm has become infertile, and there are better job oppurtnuites in America.
3: When I arrived at Ellis Island they inspected me to see if I was a "first class" or "second class" citizen. I happened to pass but my brother was sick and was sent back.
4: I soon realized that the Americans looked at us as loud filthy drunks.
5: When I came here I realized it would be an easier transition for me to stay with people of my own ethnicity.
6: Many young polish men have adapted to the American society just like I have.
