On the ship I became acqquinted with a young Austrian physician, 
who had made the trip to America with a goodly stipend of 
travel money in his pocket.  I went with him to a German hotel, 
where I found good lodging and food.
 That evening I met Hug. Kuchengecker in a German hotel.
  He had searched everywhere for me and fortunately we met one 
another.  You should have seen how happy he was.     I, too,
was very glad to see him.   I now had someone who could advise 
and inform me in all matters.  Immediately after his arrival, 
Hugo had found work with a carpenter from Gnidmar by the name 
of Freitag.  During the days I spent in New York, Hugo
 escorted me about among the Frankenbergers.      We were at both
 Beyers, the sons of the Beyer on the "Rhaine".   They
both
have large bakeries, and are becoming wealthy.      They inquired 
most particularly about you dear father, told about the cures
 you had effected upon them and proposed that I remain there.
  They would support me as much as possible and provide me with
enough patients.  I also met the two sons of Zurmuhe here, the 
elder works for Beyer, the younger has disposed of his meat 
market and has become a carpenter.
