Thank you for your information. He was coming "to stay perm[anently]." (That's perm. instead of farm.) He had already been to the U.S. (arriving at St. Albans, VT) to visit his brother Alfred Gaumond at 69 West 105th Street in NY from 5 Oct 1916 to 30 Apr 1918. Then, he arrived in Michigan on 3 May 1935 "to stay perm." at his brother's.
The transcription of the record says "Arrival Date: 3 May 1935," but do you think it really says 3 May 1938 on the record? He was deported on 3 May 1938, so he probably would have been sent back right away, correct, instead of waiting three years to deport him?
There is nothing written in the box for the Act of 1924 on the front of the card, so I don't know if that is the reason. He wasn't Asian (though I know they excluded other people, as well).
I think the back says something like "No c...," but it can't be cash because the front states that he paid $25.
Still a mystery, but I really appreciate your help!!
