It was hard for Salvatore to leave the island which he had never left in his life before, to become a sailor in the navy of King Victor Emanuel. He even wept like a child. It was hard for him who had never been less free than the birds to be at the beck and call of others, it was even more hard to live in a battleship with strangers instead of in a little white cottage among the vines. Though sometime he had felt that Ischia looked a little like his village or Vesuvius looked pearly at dawn, when all those passed, he was left alone and dreadfully homesick. It was also very hard for him to part from the girl he had loved. He missed her terribly and constantly wrote letters to her telling how much he missed and thought about her.
