This chapter chronicles Isaac Mayer Wise’s departure from Bohemia. Though the inherent unpleasantness of the journey was compounded by its length, Wise has nothing worse to say about the voyage than that ‘I railed at the stupidity of my surroundings’. The Atlantic may have favoured him, though the chapter notes that throughout his life he travelled great distances with little complaint. The hardships Wise does not mention. A new life had begun for him and what had happened before did not concern him over-much; what he gives prominence to is a dream which he says came to him three days before he landed.
