Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezekiel, xxxvii: 28.)--'And the heathen shall
know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.' Caius Cestius was
a Roman prætor and tribune of the people, who died about 30 B.C., and Agrippa, his executor, erected this tomb to his memory,
with two colossal statues, which are not now in existence. It is a striking fulfillment of prophecy to remember that in this
land, which was heathen at the time Ezekiel wrote, is now established the most expensive and sublime sanctuary that has ever
been erected by the faith of man. Saint Peter's might well stand for the sanctuary which God promised by his prophet to establish
in the midst of his people for evermore."
