Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matthew, xiii:1,2.)--The Sea of Galilee is about six miles wide and about fifteen miles long. There are only a few little boats found upon its waters to-day. In the time of our Savior, however, there were upon it great fleets. When the forces of Titus, the Roman general, besieged the City of Tiberias, large numbers of the people flocked into the boats; and at this time an engagement took place in which as many people perished in the sea as on the land. According to Josephus, 6,500 thus perished. There are a great many fish in this sea, but they are caught from the shore alone. The above picture was photographed from a point on the shore where the walls of Tiberias stand. On the shore of this sea was a favorite place of our Savior for teaching the people."
