Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezra, ix:1.)--'Now when these things were done,
the princes came to me, saying the people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites have not separated themselves from the
people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites,
the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians and the Amorites.' About the time Ezra uttered the prayer recorded in this ninth
chaper, confessing the sins of his people, the Spartans and the Boeotians were waging war against Athens. We give, as illustrating
the Grecian history, contemporaneous with the facts of the ninth chapter of Ezra, a picture of a modern bridge over the Ilissus.
This is a small stream that flows at the bottom of a deep ravine, through the classic city of Athens. It is dry a part of
the year, and yet is one of the most famous water courses on earth, made so by the great men who have lived on and about it."
