Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Exodus, xxiii:23.)--'For mine angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.' Wady 'Ali is a view of the country on the way between Jaffa and Jerusalem. We left Ramleh at six o'clock, and started for Jerusalem, and came to the Wady 'Ali, which is the valley of entrance to the mountains of Judea, about nine o'clock. This picture was taken as we started up the mountains. This part of the country was embraced in the promise early made to the children of Israel if they would obey the voice of God and provoke Him not to anger. There is something of sublimity combined with delicate beauty about this part of the Judean mountains. Rocks and cliffs broken into large or small fragments are piled in successive layers to form these hills, while between and above and around are wild flowers of all colors."
