__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezekiel, xlvii:16.)--We are standing here at the foot of the Anti-Libanus mountain. The rocks rise up directly from the bank of the river. This is about a mile above the city of Damascus. The two merchants in flowing robes we see standing upon the bridge are fit representatives of the old and wealthy city of Damascus. In no other city on earth is there seemingly so much of physical repose and rest as here. Damascus seems to meet that universal element in human life that longs for relaxation in some quiet retreat. Here in Damascus man seems to find an escape from the responsibilities and momentous issues of the world's hard work, and here, away from the storm and noise of life, he finds a deeply shaded landscape hidden from the glare of the sun and away from the thunder of the world's trouble."
