Don't cry, Janie. Don't cry.

You'll be all right soon.

Come on, Janie, don't cry.

Kids think nothing

ever happened before they were born.

But what happened to all of us...

...began the day my mother and father

got off the steamboat...

...in Eureka, Wisconsin.

It was September, 1856.

Oh, heh, I wonder, uh, could you direct

a body to the house of Will Jamison?

Oh, heh, for... Forgive me

for not introducing myself.

My name's Robert Strong Eunson.

And I come from the Shetland Isles.

My wife's uncle Will Jamison

wrote us a letter inviting us to America.

Will never mentioned it.

Well, that's the Jamisons for you.

Closemouthed, eh, Mamie?

Excuse me, this is my missus.

- Mister?...

- Bradley, Harry Bradley.

Well, we're pleased

to make your acquaintance, Mr. Bradley.

- This is Howard Tyler.

- Pleased to meet you, Mr. Tyler.

I'm afraid you folks

must prepare yourself for a shock.

- Oh?

- Will Jamison's dead.

His house burned to the ground

three weeks ago.

Now, lass...

...you hadn't seen your uncle

since you were a wee one.

Don't grieve.

We work and slave

and pinch our pennies for the journey...

...with the family telling us

how foolhardy we are.

Aye, lass, aye.

But we wanted the baby

to be born in the New World.

Hello. Hello there.

Whoa, whoa, boy.

Well, come on, Lela.

We heard that you young folks

had come out here.

Harry Bradley should've had

better sense than to let you.

I'm Dr. Delbert and this is my wife.

Oh, how do you do, doctor?

Mrs. Delbert? This is my missus.

- How do you do?

- How do you do?

- You're coming straight home with us.

- Oh, no. No, thank you.

We have money to pay

for a night's lodging at the inn.

Oh, no. I'm afraid there isn't any inn

this side of Oshkosh.

We're certainly

not going to let you go to the stable.

- Thank you, but we couldn't be a bother...

- No bother at all.

Come along, dear.

You can have the girls' room.

They'll sleep on the parlor floor.

They've done it before.

Rob, where are you?

Right here, lass.

There, jo.

There, there, there.

Jo.

It wouldn't be pains you're feeling,

would it?

Oh, would you?...

Would you like a tumbler of water?

Oh, jo, there, there, now.

You're not to fret.

Tomorrow we start back to Fair Isle.

With me like this

and only $45 in your belt?

Well, then...

You remember Green Bay...

...the city on the water

where we purchased the nanny goat?

I'll find work to do there

in one of the sawmills or grist mills...

...and work.

Couldn't you find?...

Couldn't you find work here in Eureka...

...and we'd be put?

Not flying off hither and thither

to that Blue Bay or this Green Bay.

Well, the men on the riverboat,

they were talking of the logging camps.

No.

A man cannot leave his wife

to fend for herself and a newborn. No.

Don't worry about Robbie and me.

Robbie?

Then you've named the lad? Hm?

If it does not displease you.

Not if you think you can stand

having two Roberts underfoot.

Whoa.

- Well, how are you, Mrs. Runyon?

- Fine, fine, thank you.

Well, that's good. Good to see you.

Well, what's that?

Hm? Oh, that's a pump.

Well, I know it's a pump.

But inside the cabin?

- Aye, Mrs. Runyon.

- Why, I never heard of such a thing.

Neither did I.

But with the baby coming next month

and myself in the woods all winter...

...well, a man don't want his missus

digging her way through drifts...

...to the pump each morning.

Well, folks will think it's queer,

you being immigrants and all.

Well, uh, ma'am...

...I don't know

why folks would think it queer...

...for a man to want

to ease a burden on his missus.
