â€śLetters from an American Farmer,â€? written by Crevecouer, starts off with the man asking his past people, â€śwhat country man they are.â€? He then describes his former country as a poor land which never put food on the table and whose fields were always bear. Vastly differing is the land he now inhabits, America.

In America he is a citizen and is part of a country.

But realizing that in order to keep the job he would need to take a physical examination, it left him a little weary.
