Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Hosea, ix: 17.)--'My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations." This prophecy of Hosea was uttered about 760 B.C. Its fulfillment began when Israel was carried away to Assyria and Media by Sargon, 722. B.C. From that time forward it remained true that God's chosen people were wanderers among the nations. When St. Paul came to Corinth from Athens, in A.D. 51, he found here a synagogue and a great many Jews. The walls of Acro-Corinth are built around the sides of a mountain overlooking the ancient city of Corinth. Upon the brow of this mountain there was a temple of Venus, and at the time St. Paul was here it was, perhaps, the most wicked and licentious city on the earth. To-day it is in ruins, showing that heathen cities no less than those of the chosen people could not sin without suffering the consequences." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph
