A series of stories, separate but with the same principal characters. The scenes are laid among the Jews of New York City, and the emotions and privations of these people are portrayed in vivid colors. The doctor—would that we all were of as noble stuff as he—shares their joys and sorrows and practices medicine more for the good that he does than for the money he gets out of it. The book is worth reading for pure pleasure, and considerable inspiration and sympathy are likely to be received in the process.
