lloBTOS, June 3, 18S6,
My Dear Sib I gladly state the
facts of my two interviews with Dr. H.
Sonncscbein :
1 have had some acquaintance with
him for several years, and my impres
sions of Mm have always been of the
As I understand it hla position when
here waa this: He was doubtful as to
whether he would be able, con
scientiously, to remain in bis position
aa a Jewish rabbi. Tbat is. he ie'.t it
a question as to whether bis people
would eo far indorse bis views as to
make it possible for him to do so aa
an honest man. If not, then it be
came a preffling and practical question
aa to what be wou'd do. He seemed
to be in much the same position
which 1 occupied when I was able to
leave tbe orthodox church.
In bis conversations with me be
wished to find out the positions and
tendencies of Unit.irianiem, bo tbat
if driven out ot the synagogue be
might know whether there would be
any other field loft him as a preacher,
lie was also considering the pot-si-blli'y
of leaving the ministry alto
gether, bnt felt that ho did not wish
to if he could belp it, as both love
and training were still tbat way.
Tbere was nothing in hia words and
manner that was not manly and
straightforward. Whatever he finally
does I can only wish him all prosperi
ty. Sincerely, m. j. savage.

Bobton, Mass., Juno 3, lSNi), )
Dear Sib 1 have been asked to
s'ate. what relations I have had to Dr.
S. H. Stunt nebcin. This 1 am very
ready to do. They have been the
simplest. He waa introduced to ma
when he was in Boatnn by a letrer, as
I remember, from Mr. Eliot', but of
this lost 1 am not sure. 1 conversed
with him ahnut an hour, possibly two,
on the views of theological positions
of modern Judaism, and also of Amer
ican UniUrianiem 1 got .the idea tbat
he wished to ascertain whether, in
event tkHt his vews should be too lib
eral for his own people, he should feel
at home among uj. But ha made no
application then, and hai cot, to my
knowleige, made any aince,and I had
long since dtopped the whole thing
from my mind as an interesting inter
view which had, and probabty was,
not expected ti have auy practical re
sults beyond better acqunintonce with
our position and spiritual tendencies.
Very trulv,
bto't of tho A. L A.
"I am surotlsed to notice in the re
port in the iffpnWicoii of yesterday on
the Sonneachein alTair," said a friend
r f Dr. Sonneschein, yesterday, "that
reports had been given out concern
ing the meeting of the Board ot
XriiHtees Sunday that were incorrect
and apparently given to prejudice the
public. The board had no thought of
removing the rabbi at that mee'ing.
Tbe statement about the re-olutions
was correct, but ths final paragraph of
the report as to Dr Sonneschein be
ing displaed is en'irely unfounded."
"Uuder the constitution the b ard
has no power in this case to call Dr.
Sonneschein befoto them tomorrow
evening," observed a member of the
bnard yesterday, "but I do not think
the doctor would stand on a technical
ity like that. He will surely appear
before the board."
"Will he consent to the investiga
tion as proposed?"
"I do not know tat he will not.
He will probably object to it on the
same ground that the former commit
tfe refused to serve. Those on the
committee who would not be iriendly
to Dr. Sonneachein would without
doubt hand in a minority report. It
is well known that the majority of the
Board of Tr.istocs are anxious to con
vict him, and if they have a voice in
the matter they would adopt the mi-
noiity report- For that reason I think
the doctor should refuse to allow snch
an investigation as waa proposed by
the board.
"But the reeolut'oa providing for the
Investigation was carefully piepared.
AU of tbe memlirr', with probably
two exceptions, thought the commit
tee of five provided Tor would, if the
proposition to investigate Sonne;
chein's record in that w ay was kindly
received, report the result i f their in
vts'igation to the Board of Trustees "
"I do t ot think Dr. Sonneschein will
opprs this inves'tgAion," said one
member. "The ies duMoo, lam quite
sure, does not etipula'e that tbe com
mittee sliab report to the h ard. Con
sequntly, if they inv. stigate the mat
ter, they can finally dispone of it."
