He published are large number of books over the years including religious works, biographies and stories for young people. Jones: Guide to the Holiness Movement #7275. Wise state in his Preface: "The widow whose trials are recorded in these pages was well known to the writer. He had the pleasure of aiding her to escape from her hour of thickest gloom; and of witnessing the ripeness of her piety toward the end of her life. In writing this narrative, he has taken the liberty to enlarge and expand somewhat the original facts and conversations, which were stated to him by the lady herself. Names, places and dates are also changed, or concealed for obvious reasons. The work, therefore, is substantially a record of facts; and the writer hopes it may engrave some lines of truth on the susceptible minds of the youth, for whom he writes. D.W. Elm-Street Parsonage, New-Bedford, 1852."
