MY indebtedness extends to a long range of sources and authorities, which are in the main responsible for any merit this book may possess. To the following publishers, periodicals and newspapers, my acknowledgments are preeminently due:

  • The Ark, Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • I am also indebted to a number of periodicals and newspapers for poems—notably The Jewish Quarterly Review, The Menorah Monthly (formerly the official organ of the B’nai Berith), The Jewish Hope, The Jewish Messenger, and various scattered, short-lived, fugitive periodicals.

    Various other Anthologies have also greatly helped me in my work—more particularly the excellent and exhaustive Hebrew Anthology of my friend, Dr. George Alexander Kohut, who has also permitted the use of a number of poems from his own pen, printed in an edition only privately circulated.

    The indulgence of both publishers and authors is asked, if due acknowledgment is not herein made for the use of any copyright material which may be included in these pages.

    [Owing to the untimely death of the compiler, it has not been possible to ascertain whether the above list of Acknowledgments is complete. As Dr. Friedlander was most scrupulous in his relations with others, it is safe to assume that he has not failed to record his indebtedness, so far as it lay in his power.]
