A warning against emigrating in "Illustrert Folkeblad" (The Illustrated People's Newspaper) May 14, 1856.
Ole: Where are you going?
Peer: I am going to America.
Ole: Go back home to your bowl of porridge, Peer. In America you will find hard work but little food, as you can see by looking at me. I come straight from there now.
Peer: Yes, it can't be easy to live there. When you left, you were about the same size as I am, and now you don't think seem to me to be very bulky. I think I will turn back, Ole."
