Excerpt from Plain Facts for Future CitizensThe path of the non-English-speaking immigrant in America is bestrewn with many difficulties. A stranger in a strange land, this newcomer finds himself face to face with trials of which he little dreamed when he left his native domicile in search of home and happiness in a new land.Surrounded by unfamiliar scenes, confronted by strange customs and a strange language, many an immigrant is so perplexed by the situation that his embarrassment results in serious complications for himself and others.Not only is the immigrant handicapped by his inability to understand and speak the English language, but his ignorance of American customs sometimes causes him innocently to become a transgressor of law and order.Only by those who have a full appreciation of the struggle made by the immigrant to overcome the obstacles which fill his early life in America is it thoroughly understood that violations of our laws and ordinances are more often the result of ignorance or misunderstanding on the part of the transgressor than any desire of his to break the laws of the country in which he has chosen to seek a home.And it is the earnest belief of those who have a most intimate knowledge of these strangers in our land that it is the hope and wish of the vast majority of them to fit themselves to become worthy citizens of their new home.To overcome some of the difficulties and embarrassments by which the early life of the immigrant in America is beset, it is essential that he be made to understand, as soon as possible, something of the customs and institutions which govern life in America.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
