This chapter describes Isaac Mayer Wise’s first impressions of America as he disembarked, and the impression made by his arrival. When he established himself in Cincinnati in 1854, Wise began to publish two weeklies, for both of which he wrote profusely. For the 1846–1854 period, the chronicle is less ample, but he did figure in such other Jewish periodicals as appeared at that time, and in other records, for example, of synagogues. In 1874–1875, Wise wrote Reminiscences, which began with his arrival in New York and broke off abruptly with the publication of his prayer-book Minhag America in 1857. Naturally, they form the principal guiding lines for a sketch of his career during these eleven years.
