Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, xxx: 1-3)--'Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: that walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt! Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.' We give a picture of the barracks at the citadel in Cairo. Standing upon this hill overlooking the most interesting city in Egypt, it is easy to see how true were the words of Isaiah quoted above. The strength of Egypt has always been its shame and the shame of all who have looked to her for help. The enormous wealth which from age to age has been extracted from the fertile soil of this ancient land has been used to corrupt and degrade the ruling class, and to oppress and make unendurable the lives of the laboring classes."
