Title Hello, New World
Description stay here under the strained relationship. I can secure work in Uppsala." It was with heavy hearts, nevertheless, that they left Krusenberg, Johanna often went to the woods or lake to shed a few tears. One day Theresa found her there and they cried together. The parting was a sad one..."So unnecessary" pro-tested Theresa. In Uppsala they secured a little flat near the great University. Here the children were fascinated by the life that whirled around them in a college town. They would take trays with glasses of water and stand on the paths where the students in top hats and swinging canes would pass. Curtsying they would ask, "Here students, would you like a drink of cold water?" Often they would take a glass a drop a coin on the tray to the delight of the children. The awing Renaissance Castle on the hill was another mecca for adventuring. The boat on which their passage was booked had been delayed and it was just as well, Johanna was going to have a baby so they decided to remain there until after its birth. Anders had good work that would raise money for their passage. A frail baby girl was born, but with care she seemed to grow into a healthy child. Again a date was set for their departure. "Please," pleaded Johanna, "I cannot go without seeing my father and mother once more." Her parents now living on an island of the Stockholm Archipelago too sorrowed for a daughter and family they thought lost to a heathen religion. "Goodbye, dear misguided ones. May God protect you," said her father, his face so sad as he leaned heavily upon his cane. As the boat left the Island Johanna's mother stood on the shore and waved a white tablecloth as a banner of farewell. This they could see as long as the boat was in sight of the land, getting smaller and smaller until it was only the size of a handkerchief. Always, all the rest of her life Johanna would see the tablecloth waving in her mind's eye...a sad farewell to parents she would never see again. 34
