…“my grandfather stood at the edge of town and watched his daughter and four grandchildren, in a horse drawn wagon, leaving for far off America, and knowing he will never again see them. It must have been half an hour before the wagon was out of sight, and he stood there all this time, and I kept looking back to see him. I didn’t realize then what a heartbreak it was for him. He loved his daughter and grandchildren as I do mine. I am sure there were tears in the old man’s eyes.”
