23 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.
