__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Exodus ii: 5.)-- 'And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side: and when she saw the ark among the flags she sent her maid to fetch it. And when she had opened it, she saw the child.' According to tradition, Moses was hid in the rushes near the scene which we give above. The Nilometer measures the annual rise of the river. It is situated at the southern extremity of the Island of Rhoda opposite old Cairo. Egypt is often called the gift of the Nile, and hence this river is held in almost sacred reverence by the natives. The inundation of the Nile begins about the end of June and reaches its highest point at the end of September. It then gradually subsides until by the end of January the country begins to dry up again." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5308BAI/LVii34CAJS (Voyager # 360979).
