Excerpt from The Hebrews in America: A Series of Historical and Biographical Sketches
The design of this volume is to show the degree of prominence and influence attained by the Hebrews of the United States. The preparation of the work was undertaken at the suggestion of the numerous readers of a less elaborate series of sketches upon the same subject which appeared in the "New York Mail and Express" about one year since. In the course of his earlier researches the author brought to light a vast amount of interesting material regarding the Hebrews in this country, the publication of which, in the secular press was, for obvious reasons, found impracticable. The material then secured, which has been supplemented by further investigation, constitutes the present volume. In preparing this work the author has consulted various State and Municipal histories and the collections of various Historical Societies, including " Colonial History of New York," "Westcott's Philadelphia."
