1 photograph : b&w ; 25.3 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Genesis, xxvi:3,4.)--'Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father.' Nearly four thousand years from the time these words were spoken to Abraham, we find a village as shown above, built by the Rothschilds, descendants of Abraham, in Palestine, the country that was promised to Abraham, and built as a place of residence for the Jews. It is a striking and interesting commentary upon the covenant between Heaven and these ancient people, that we find in these the last days of the nineteenth century, a disposition on the part of the Jews, which liberal and fortunate men of their race are helping them to carry out, to go back and possess the land of their fathers. Roshpina stands near the waters of Merom." "Vol. 2" and "F" are printed below the photograph and text
