Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(II. Kings, xxiii:1-2.)--'And the king sent and they gathered unto him all the elders of Judah and of Jerusalem. And the king went up into the house of the Lord, and all the men of Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the people both small and great; and he read in their ears all the words of the book of the covenant which was found in the house of the Lord.' The artist who took these pictures, and the writer, arose in Jericho about 2:30 o'clock, and after a slight breakfast started at 3 o'clock for Jerusalem. We passed by the Judean mountains, as in awful solemnity they stood around us in the quiet moonlight, and reached Bethany, two miles from Jerusalem, at 8 o'clock. This picture was taken about 8:30 as we approached Jerusalem from Bethany." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph.
