The disposition of the reigning classes in Egypt to oppress the toiling masses and to afflict them with hard bondage continues unto this day to be a characteristic of the rulers here. This great palace of Gizeh, built by Ismail-Pasha at a cost of about $25,000,000, literally represents so much wealth extracted from the poor laboring people of Egypt. Ismail-Pasha put upon the Egyptian government the enormous debt of $500,000,000. The people so groaned under the burden of debt that the powers at Constantinople were forced to depose him, and to confiscate his landed properties and residences. The view above given represents a scene in the garden of the second story of this palace known as the Harem Garden. 'There the young flowerets with sweet perfume blow, There every evening comes the after-glow, Tipping the leaflets with liquid gold.'" See 5130BAI/LVi48CAJS (Voyager # 357567)
