Gimpel gets some terrible tobacco. 2-16-1915

February 16, 1915: His American nose can't tolerate everything.
  1. A pinch of tobacco? Don't mind if I do. It's been a long time since I enjoyed the treat.
  2. Feh! My eyes are swimming from the swinish...
  3. A-choo!
  4. A-choo! Gevald, how can I run from this? I can't take it.
  5. Oy, I feel like I'm in a submarine.

זײַן אַמעריקאַנער נאָז קען שױן ניט אַלעס פֿאַרטראָגען.

אַ שמעק טאַבאַק? מהיכא תיתי. טאַקי שױן לאַנג ניט פֿאַרזוכט דעם מאכל.
פֿע! עפּעס שװינדעלט מיר אין דיא אױגען פֿון דעם הזיר׳שען…
אָפּ-טשו! גװאַלד, װאוהין אַנטלױפֿט מען דערפֿון? שױן ניט אױסצוהאַלטען.
אױ, עפּעס פֿיהל איך גלײַך װיא איך װאָלט געװען אין אַ סאָמבאַרין.
