Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, iv: 4-6..)--In the three verses referred to above Christ is represented as cleansing, guiding, and preserving the church. The Lord is represented as creating upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud of smoke by day, and the shining of a flame of fire by night. There is to be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge and for a covert [sic] from storm and from rain. Without fear and without doubt the church may go forth in the discharge of its duty, relying upon the everlasting truth that God shall keep it safely. His mountains are to be round about Jerusalem henceforth and even forever more. The candlestick is not to be removed from out of its place. St. Paul's Church in Rome is but the continuation in modern times of the church which Isaiah referred to as the tabernacle in his day. This church stands just outside the walls of Rome."
