Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Numbers, xxxiv:11.)--'And the border shall descend and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward.' We give this view of the monastery near Bethsaida, because it stands upon the side of the sea of Chinnereth, now called the Sea of Galilee. This monastery is near the city of Bethsaida, one of the towns in which Christ performed so many of his wonderful works and one of the towns upon which he pronounced a woe. We are looking here toward the east. We see the upper Gadarene country there beyond the Sea of Galilee, and the gradual falling of the country as it slopes toward the sea on the north. Tourists stop here and find good accommodations in this monastery. According to prophecy, it really has been more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon than for this place." "Franklin Co Eng-Chi" is printed at the bottom of the photograph. See 5266BAI/LVi184CAJS (Voyager # 360134)
