Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., xxi:1.)--The Golden Gate is in the eastern wall of Jerusalem. It looks toward the Mount of Olives. In the first verse of the 21st chapter of Matthew, we have an account of the triumphant entry of our Savior from the Mount of Olives through this gate. It is now closed up. The Mahometans have a tradition to the effect that foreigners will some day capture Jerusalem and enter the city through this gate. Two columns of this gate are said by Moslems to have been brought on her shoulders by the Queen of Sheba as a present to King Solomon. Through this gate the Moslems think the good at the last day will pass on their way to the houris of Paradise after having safely crossed the Kedron on that bridge which is sharper than the sharpest sword."
