      I think he's glad to get off that ship. Now he needs a bath, good meal and a warm bed. Some of my Norwegian ancestors arrived via Ellis Island but this fellow looks like my brother-in-law.

      According to the original ship's manifest on EllisIsland.org, he was on his way to visit his Aunt Mathilda Sloan in Salt Lake City. There's also a note about something being crooked due to infantile paralysis, but I can't read what it says.
