Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Mark, xiv:32.)--Between Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives, in the valley of the Kedron, there is a place that no one ever fails to visit while in Palestine--it is the Garden of Gethsemane. There is about an acre of ground enclosed by a fence, and an old olive tree that is said to date from the time of Christ himself, and flowers of all varieties beautifully cultivated and kept by the faithful and devoted monks. Here it was that our Savior met his disciples for the last conference and prayer before the crucifixion. One cannot enter and return from this garden without being a tenderer and better man--something here appeals to the highest and deepest sentiments within the human heart. The flowers which grow in this sacred enclosure are cut by the monks and given in small bouquets to the tourists."
