Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I. Chron., xxviii:9.)--'And thou, Solomon, my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart, and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou foresake him, he will cast thee off forever.' We give a view of Dervish beggars such as are found today in Jerusalem, and they serve to illustrate what comes to people when they violate the laws of God. The most wretched and inhuman looking creatures we have ever seen are found among the beggars of Palestine. They are diseased, degraded, and as miserable as humanity with the dregs of generations of sin can make them. The degradation of this wretched class is perhaps due in some respect to the tyrannical, remorseless and outrageous Turkish civilization under which they live." "Franklin Co Eng-Chi" is printed at the bottom of the photograph. "Vol. 2" and "D2" are printed beneath the photograph
