The story of Amedeo Obici, the found of Planter's Peanuts. Amedeo was unable to speak English, and when he sailed across the Atlantic Ocean from Le Havre, France in March 1889, aged just twelve years old, his destination was written on a label tied through a buttonhole on his coat. It led to quite an adventure before he finally reached his Uncle in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
