Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, xv: 41.)--'And he went through Syria
and Cilicia, confirming the churches.'--Acts, xv: 41. It is not definitely stated in the Scriptures when St. Paul entered
Beyrout, or the city that stood where the modern Beyrout now stands. He could hardly pass through Syria, along the coast into
Cilicia, without passing through the Berytus of the Greeks and Romans. This was a city of the ancient Jebelites. Herod the
Great caused a mock trial to be held here over his two sons. Herod Agrippa adorned this city with baths and theaters. Here
Titus came after the destruction of Jerusalem. The silk trade has flourished here from the time of the Romans. The falls are
north of the city. They are at the foot of the Lebanon Mountains, and the water is largely melted snow." Copyright year and
photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
