Notes:
Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(II. Kings, iv: 8.)--'And it fell on a day that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as oft as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread. And she said unto her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy man of God, which passeth by us continually. Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed and a table and a stool and a candlestick; and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither.' Shunem literally means 'two resting places.' It is a city in the territory of Issachar. It is in the plain of Jezreel. Here lived the worthy woman who built a room for Elisha, and whose son the Prophet restored to life. It is now the village on the declivity of the western extremity of Little Hermon." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi''. See 5278BAi/LVii4CAJS (Voyager # 360743)
