Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18.2 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, xxii: 41).--The Garden of Gethsemane is enclosed by a wall. To the north of the Garden and outside of it there is a spot pointed out as the place where Christ uttered the last prayer. A lamp hangs here and burns all the day and all the night long. It is a sad and touching scene to stand in the presence of this place and to watch the reverent and devoted saints stand and look upon it with sympathy and love. Many looking upon this scene do not pretend to conceal the tears which flow down their cheeks. This serves to bring before their imagination the agony and grief of the last hours of our Savior's life, when He uttered that last prayer for his disciples and for the world. Of Himself He never seemed to think; it was of those He came into the world to teach and redeem." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
