We must spend a night here, but we'll leave early in the morning," Carl told his sister. The immigrant hotel where the travelers stayed was dirty and crowded. Carl took out the remaining bread and cheese that his mother had given them. They ate in silence. In the morning, they walked to the dock where a large steamer awaited them.

How does she always know what I'm thinking? he wondered. He put his arm around her. "Don't make a hasty decision," Mama said. "The crops may improve this year. " "It won't matter, Mama," Carl said.
