Here's a rather interesting little postscript to an 1860* letter from Jonas Bondi to Isaac Leeser:
It says, "In Jeschurun I am in the company of Luzzatto, better than Szold, Wise and Illoway."
This refers to the Jeschurun published by Joseph Kobak, not Samson Raphael Hirsch (of whom Bondi was a critic). And he is talking smack about some famous names among the American rabbis of his day - one of whom - Wise - would become his son-in-law! Apparently he liked the company in Jeschurun, but not the American Jewish publications of the day.
* Not 1865, as in the transcription here.
