1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, xx: 15.)--'And we sailed thence, and came the next day over against Chios, and the next day we arrived at Samos.' Samos is an island in the Ægean Sea, on the coast of Asia Minor. The island is about 87 miles in circumference, and is known as the birthplace of Pythagoras. The people of Samos assisted the Greeks against the Persians when Xerxes invaded Europe. The people of the island have always been under the influence of Grecian ideas, and while to-day ruled by the Sultan of Turkey they are loyal in thought and feeling to Greece. This is not surprising, for the inhabitants of this island share the glory that belongs to Greece because of her achievements in literature, art and war in ancient times. The people here are seemingly prosperous."
