The article describes the life of Rabbi Henry Cohen in Galveston, Texas in the 1900s. He was ordained in 1884 and served as pastor in Kingston, Jamaica and Woodville, Mississippi. His standard itinerary is from the jail to John Sealey and St. Mary's hospitals. He was appointed to head a project in Galveston where some of the immigrant population will be diverted from the East to the South and West. He made friends with the prisoners and his concern for them as human beings led him to go before the State Senate to plead for better conditions in the prisons. A description of his house is also presented.
