Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Mark, xiv: 3.)--There is no village in the world
outside of Bethlehem, where our Savior was born, more attractive than the village of Bethany, where He so often sojourned
with His friends, Lazarus and Mary and Martha. Here Jesus came to rest after the toil and conflicts of the day in Jerusalem.
Here He found friends who understood Him and sympathized with Him; and His connection with this little village has endeared
it to the hearts of the human race. Here took place the incident of the woman having the alabaster box of ointment, giving
rise to an immortal lesson. There is nothing in its present appearance to win consideration for it. Because it was so often
the home and resting-place of the Lord Jesus Christ is it so much loved and so often visited to-day. It is two miles from
Jerusalem and on the road to Jericho." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph,
along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
