Yes, Yes. No other way can it be.
Surely, that's the American way.
Let's go! Ship me off across the sea.
In Germany only a fool would stay.
Woe is me! I have been monstrously deceived!
Oh land of my fathers, how I long for thee!
I perish here a poor wretch behind the plow --
Whilst lion and vulture devour my wife and child.
"The German Emigrant"
A Caricature Depicting the Dream of the Good Life in America. Woodcut(1845) from the "Fliegende Blätter," from Willi Paul Adams, Schmelztiegel, p.5
