Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Psalms, cxxv: 2.)--'As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even forever.' East of the valley of Jehoshaphat rises the Mount of Olives. This is one of the mountains which the Psalmist refers to as standing round about Jerusalem. There are a number of olive trees still found upon the mountain, and upon its western base is a cluster of ancient ones known throughout the world to indicate the Garden of Gethsemane. The top of this mountain is held by many to be the place where the Savior left the earth, and his footsteps are still shown to those who are willing to believe extraordinary things. According to the Scripture, Christ ascended from Bethany. From the top of the Mount of Olives we have the most commanding view of the city of Jerusalem." "I 2" is printed beneath the text.
