More > reduced the Lower Palatinate to a wasteland, when people ate grass and leaves, when graves were guarded, and children were kept near their mothers, when passenger ships were loaded beyond capacity, with bunk beds almost everywhere, when hundreds were buried at sea, when lengthy voyages caused rationing of bread and water, and selling of available ship rats and mice, when churning sea gales rose like mountains and tumbled over frightened migrants, when the unhealthy were unwelcome at the port in Philadelphia.
