Description

This is the diary of Harriet Noyes throughout the first part of 1876. She recounts her travels throughout Asia, including Malaysia and Thailand, as well as the various peoples she visits along the way. During her journey, Hattie receives the devastating news that her brother, Frank, has died before she was able to see him. Additionally, while in Thailand, her brother, Henry, marries his second wife, Arabella Anderson. A fair portion of the diary is dedicated to Harriet's travels in the 'Holy Land'. Hattie writes extensively about the biblical places she visits, as well as the biblical stories which they were a part of.

Tuesday 3
January 18th
Rose Early and went on deck to find
that we were just outside "the Bar"
Signaled for a pilot and one soon
came off who said that it two hours the
tide would be high Enough for us to
cross the Bar. The banks of the river are
very low and covered with trees and
tropical vegetation. We came to anchor
about twelve-o-clock passed on our way
up the river the Presbyterian Miss Compound
at "the lower end." A man who came up
from the Bar on board the Madagascar
kindly took us in his boat up to Dr Dean's.
We found them just taking lunch. They
gave us a warm welcome which made us
feel at home at once. Towards evening
Dr Dean took us in his boat up to Dr House's
where we found Dr + Mrs House Miss Anderson
and Miss Grimstead. After our return to
Mr Dean's Mr McDonald with Mr and Mrs
Dunlap called ----------
Wednesday

After breakfast Henry and I went up
to Dr House's and staid till after lunch.
Called at Mrs Bradley's on the way down
and met there Dr and Mrs Chuk
Attended prayer meeting at Dr Dean's
at 4 P.M. Nearly all the missionaries present.
Thursday - January 20th
In the morning Enjoyed a delightful drive with Dr Dean
After breakfast went down the river and called
on Mrs Dunlap + Mrs Van Dyke Dr Dean + Henry
called at the American Consuls. In the afternoon we
left for Petchaburi stopping on the way to spend a very
pleasant evening at Mrs Bradley's where we Enjoyed
hearing some good music.

4 Friday
January 21st
Spent in the boat "En route" for Petchaburi,
A very hot day and both Mr Dunlap
and I suffered from severe headache.
Passed just at night-fall a Roman Catholic
settlement, saw one of the priests a foreigner.
Saturday
January 22.
Reached Petchaburi about 2 P.M. Found
our missionary friends living in a very
pleasant home-like way. Mr + Mrs McFarland
Miss Coffman and Miss Cort looking just as
when we saw them in Canton.
Towards Evening went up to the "Palace
Mountain" but were too late to see the sunset.
The country about Petchaburi is very beautiful.
The Sabbath
January 23d
A quiet homelike Sabbath. At Eight-o-clock
attended the morning service in the little
native chapel. It seemed so like a country
meeting house at home among the [?cocoa?]
trees and Everything so quiet. After we
returns visited Miss Cort's school or rather
they came to us for they gathered about her
and sitting down on the verandah floor
sung and repeated portions of Scripture.
Afterwards went over to Miss Coffman's school.
Her scholars are larger many of them
grown up women. She has thirty four
Miss Cort thirty. After dinner Mr McFarland
has a service in Miss Coffman's school-
room which was quite well attended.
The Eight women who are church members
came up to the ladies verandah afterwards
to have a visit with me. In the evening
we had a[--n--] prayer meeting Mr Dunlap
leading ----------

Monday 5
January 24th
Spent the morning with Mrs McFarland.
The gentlemen called on the Governor and he
promised to let them have in the afternoon
horses and a carriage to go to the Royal Mountain
About 2 P.M. the horse came two saddle horses
for Mr Dunlap and Henry and a tiny little
carriage for the ladies. Mrs McFarland, Miss
Cort, and I went. The Royal Cave is a very fine
one almost Equal to Cathedral Cave but
unlike that is filled with ugly idols. Mr Dunlap
counted over 200, there was one less than there
had been however when we left. On out
way back we stopped at a temple to see
one of the sleeping Buddhas. It is indeed
immense 175 feet long. Nearly the whole of it
was covered with a dirty yellow cloth, yellow is
the sacred color of the Buddhists. I stood up
by the feet and found that the top of my
head just reached to the fifth toe, and
the length of Each toe-nail was six times
the breadth of my hand. All the figures
of Buddha have the fingers all the same
length and also the toes. On the way
back we drove through Market St and
went to call on Mr McFarland's teacher .
Saw several of the Laos people, both men,
and women. They seem much more interesting
and intelligent than the Siamese.
Spent the evenings at Mr McFarland's and
about nine-o-clock [u]embarked[/u] for our voyage
back to Bangkok --
Tuesday January 25th
Spent on board the boats. Went on shore
once to visit a temple which we found in
rather a dilapi[--t--]dated condition In the eve
had a long talk with Mr Dunlap
about [illegible] in general and particular.

6
Wednesday
January 26th
Reached Bangkok about one-o-clock
in the afternoon . Noticed in passing
Mrs Bradley's that Dr and Mrs Chuk
had not yet left for Chieng Mai At Dr
Dean's fund everything quiet Dr and
Mrs Dean taking their afternoon rest.
At 4 P.M. the missionary friends gathered
for their weekly prayer meeting and many
expressed surprise, that we had made our
trip to Petchaburi so quickly.
Thursday
January 27th
Early in the morning Dr Dean and
Henry went to the office and arranged
for our passage to Singapore on board
the Rajah Brooke a tiny little steamer
of about 200 tons which they were told
would leave Bangkok on Saturday at 2 P.M,
After breakfast Henry went up to Dr House's and
Mrs Dean and I went for a walk through
some of the streets near their house and visited
a temple one that only been built a few
years. In the afternoon wrote letters to send
back to Canton, and then went down to the
lower Mission Compound to take dinner at Mrs
Dunlap's Spent a very pleasant evening in
singing and conversation Dr and Mrs Dean
Mr + Mrs Dunlap Mr + Mrs Van Dyke and
their four little children. Mr Culbertson and
Mr McDonald. Enjoyed the row in
the boat back to Dr Deans very much,
Friday
January 28th
Spent the morning in writing letters, Dr
House called to take us up to his house
to lunch. Stopped on the way to see

7
"Watt Po" a very fine temple. Here we
saw another sleeping Buddha much
finer than the one at Petchaburi and said
to be a little larger. It is made of brick and
mortar and gilded is in much better
proportion than that at Petchaburi and
had no dirty cloth covering over it. It is
said the Expense of making it was about
$3000.00 There were many other interesting
features of this temple which we had not
time to see. As it was we were an hour
late in reaching Mrs House's where we
had promised to take tiffin. In the evening
dined with Dr House Miss Anderson and
Miss Grimstead at the English Consul's Mr Knox
Miss Anderson came back with us and
spent the night at Dr Dean's-
Saturday
January 29th
The arrangements for the
marriage of Henry and Miss Anderson
had been made for 1/2 past nine
this morning and we expected to
go from the Consulate to the steamer
but learned that she would not
leave until the next day Dr and
Mrs House with Miss Grimstead
came down to Dr Dean's also Mr and
Mrs Dunlap with Messrs Van Dyke
and McDonald Mrs House Miss
Grimstead and Mr Van Dyke did
not go to the Consulate While
the ceremony was being performed
Mrs Dean and I stood near

8
Henry + Miss Anderson. Dr Dean
performed the ceremony afterwards
the Consul had champagne and
cake passed around. We then
went back to Mrs Dean's who had
cake coffee and tea prepared.
In the afternoon as we could not
leave Bangkok we accepted an
invitation from Miss Knox to go and
call with her the 2nd King - "George
Washington-" On the way back
met Dr House's boat with a box for
Bella from America on board -
We stopped long enough to transfer
Henry + Bella to their boat and
I went back with Miss Knox
and Mr Newman to Dr Dean's-
Found them out on the lawn
playing croquet. In the evening
had a nice visit with Mrs Dean.
The Sabbath
January 30th
This morning Dr Dean had
prayers in English instead of
Chinese as on week days. Each
one repeated a verse of Scripture
Dr Dean repeated the beautiful
text "Thou wilt keep him in perfect
peace whose mind is stayed on
thee-" I shall always remember
and think of dear Dr and Mrs
Dean as a living commentary on

9
on this text. After breakfast
Henry and I went to Dr Dean's
chinese service. It seemed so
natural to be at a Chinese
service again and so unnatural
not to be able to understand what
was said for they speak in
the Swatow dialect. We waited
all day expecting momentarily a
message summoning us on board
the Rajah-Brooke but at 4 P.M.
heard that she would not leave
until [u]Monday[/u] afternoon. So instead
of going [u]up[/u] the river to the steamer
we went [u]down[/u] the river to the
chapel and hear Mr Dunlap
preach a good sermon from the
text "What think ye of Christ"?
At the landing we said good-bye
once more to the Bangkok missionary
friends. Spent a quiet evening with
Dr and Mrs Dean -
Monday
January 31st
In the morning wrote a few more
letters. Dr Dean received from
Fanny photographs of her two
little ones Willie and Katie .
After lunch Dr and Mrs Dean
went with us on board the

10
Rajah-Brooke and about four
o-clock we got under weigh.
We had a parting glimpse of
Dr Dean's house as we passed
and saw them in the verandah
waving good-bye. As we passed
the lower compound of the Pres Mission
saw them all out some on the verandah
some on the lawn below waving
their farewells to us. We found
we had three fellow passengers on
board the Rajah Brooke Mr Knaggs
from Penang Mr Wilson from
Scotland and the Bangkok Consul
Gen Partride - rather a large
company for such a little steamer.
The Captain says he has never
had more than four before and
I imagine he hardly knows what
to do with his large family.
Tuesday
February 1st
Quite a smooth sea but still
enough motion to make me a little
sea-sick. Wrote two letters read a
little and sat on deck for a time
in the evening enjoying the moonlight.
Wednesday
February 2nd
Much the same as yesterday -

11
Thursday
February 3d
Still a smooth sea although
the Captain has been prophesying
rough weather Spent nearly
all night on deck the cabins
are so small and close-
Friday
February 4th
Woke this morning to find it
very warm indeed - The deck
is so small we cannot get many
feet from the funnel which seemed
to-day to throw out a great deal
of heat. Towards noon a little
breeze sprang up which made
it more comfortable- We staid
on deck nearly all night about
one-o-clock came in sight of "The
lights of Singapore-"
Saturday
February 5th
This morning Every one was
rejoicing in the prospect of getting
on shore. We were the last to
get off. From the harbor Singapore
looks very pretty. We came to

12
the Hotel d'Europe and much
enjoyed the change to the
pleasant rooms here from the
narrow accomodations of the
Rajah Brooke. In the afternoon
went out to call on Mrs Keasbury-
The drive out "to Mt [illegible]" was
delighted and gave us some idea
of the beauty of Singapore.
The Sabbath
February 6th
Attended the morning service in
a Scotch Pres Church. The Minister
who is just out from home preached
a good sermon from the text.
"Christ formed in you the hope
of glory." Spent the afternoon
quietly in our rooms.
Monday
February 7th
Wrote some letters in the morning
Met at the table Mr Coryell father
of the former Consul in Canton.
In the afternoon called at Mrs
Adamson's but did not find
her at home. Went from there
to Mrs Keasbury's and Henry

13
returned for our luggage.
Spent a pleasant evening. A
lady named Mrs Miller wife of
a surgeon in the English army
is staying with Mrs Keasbury--
A Mr Collins who is living near

Spent the day in writing letters.
Wednesday
February 9th
Wrote letters in the morning and
about noon Mrs Adamson's carriage
came for us. Had a pleasant
visit and returned to Mrs Keasbury's
before dark. In the evening
Mrs Keasbury and Mrs Miller
played several duetts on the
piano . It seemed to see
such elderly ladies who have
kept up their practice in
music so well ---

14
Thursday
February 10th
Spent the day quietly in writing
letters. In the evening Mrs Miller
went with us for a walk about
the place and showed us a
number of fruit trees that were
new to me the Durian Mangosteen
Betelnut Rombootan Coffee Clove +c
Friday

This morning Mrs Adamson sent
us a nice basketful of mangosteens
which we enjoyed. Spent the
day in writing sewing and in the
evening had a pleasant walk
with Mrs Miller --
Saturday
February 12th
Wrote one or two letters and helped
Mrs Keasbury with her sewing -
In the evening we all gathered
around the table in the verandah
with our sewing Mr Collins came
in and had quite a romp
with the children and finally
dressed up in a wrapper of Mrs
Miller and personated several

15
different characters quite an
amusing performance -
with which the children were highly
delighted and Mrs Keasbury and
Mrs Miller seemed to enjoy it
very much.
The Sabbath -
February 13th
Our fifth Sabbath since leaving
Canton. We did not go down
to the city to service. Mrs Miller
and Mrs Keanbury intended to go
but just at the time there was
a heavy shower of rain and
they gave it up. I enjoyed seeing
it rain very much. Henry read
to us one of his sermons on "Peace
like a River-" "Oh that thou hadst
hearkened to my commandments
then had they peace been like a
river and thy righteousness as thee
waves of the sea-"
Monday
February 14th
In the morning sewed with Mrs
Miller for Mrs Keanbury. Wrote
some letters to send back to Canton.

16
making forty that I have
written since leaving there.
For the first time I think for
many years I have my letters
all answered. After lunch
Mrs Keanbury let us take her horse
and carriage and drive down
to the city. We went first to the
office and mailed our large
budget of letters. Henry was told
there that the "Priam" had come
in and gone again. This piece
of information startled us very
much for a few minutes but
we soon learned from the Agent
that it was only partly correct.
The Priam came in on the
Sabbath but would not leave
until Wednesday. We drove
down to the wharf to see the
steamer but as we were told there
were only three vacant berths could
have no choice of cabins -
In the eve Mr and Miss Young
came to dinner, and afterwards
Mr Collins favored us with
another performance like that of Saturday.

17
Tuesday
February 15th
In the morning packed our
trunks and Henry took them
down to the steamer . In the
evening Mrs Miller went with
us to see Miss Cook's school as
it is called. The ladies who
have charge of the school Miss
Ryan and Miss Foster we found
were away at the Tuesday afternoon
prayer-meeting. The school-girls
however all took their places and
sung for us. The eldest class grown
up girls Eleven in number who
told us they had been in school
for eight years sung in English
very nicely. They sung Sweet Bye + Bye
Jesus of Nazareth .Only an armor
bearer" - and then the little
girls sang If I come to Jesus.
They afterwards repeated Each
a text of scripture. I was
surprised to hear them sing so
well in English. Just as we were
leaving Miss Ryan and Miss Foster came in.

18
Wednesday
February 16th
This morning went over and
took a cup of tea with Mr Collins.
After breakfast wrote for the Recorder
and put up our things ready
to go on board. Found the ship
quite crowded with passengers -
It was very hot while we were
lying at the wharf but after we
got under weigh seemed cooler-
The sea was very calm and
all the afternoon we sailed in
sight of land the shores hilly and
covered with trees- In the eve
some of the passengers sung a
number of songs -
Thursday
February 17th
A pleasant day and smooth
sailing. We find we have for
passengers seventeen adults and
ten children Capt [?Butler?] is a
good-natured Irishman has been
a Captain for seventeen years.
Next him at table sits Miss
Murick a lady who is travelling

Friday
February 18th
Reached Penang very Early this
morning It does not seem to be
a very large place is on the
shore and surrounded by hills.
We wrote letters in the morning

21
to send back to Canton
and thought of going on shore
afterward but concluded it
was too warm. Nearly all the
passengers went off on shore.
Saturday
February 19th
Another very warm day.
We expected to leave Penang
at noon but instead of that
it was nearly four-o-clock
before we were "under weigh"--
The Sabbath
February 20th
A quiet sea smooth sailing.
Spent the day reading a
book about the Holy Land.
Monday
February 21st
Towards Evening a very rough
sea, ports all closed and many
of the passengers sea-sick.
A wave came in through Mrs
Quelch's open window drenching
her completely -

22
Tuesday
February 22nd
Not quite as rough as yesterday
were able to have our ports open
again. In the evening Mr +
Mrs Carson gave us a musical
Entertainment, the Captain
Miss Gall Miss Caught and
the Doctor danced in a little
space about three feet wide
at the head of the [?companion?]
way.
Wednesday
February 23d
Quiet sea smooth sailing.
Thursday
February 24th
This morning passed Pt de Galle
a place where a great many
steamers call. All day were
sailing near the shores of Ceylon
which are very beautiful hilly
and covered with verdure -
Just at evening reached
Colombo. The lights of the
city looked very pretty as we
saw them from the harbor.

23
Some native boats came
alongside very singular looking
craft called "catamarans" made
of one large log hollowed out
and a super structure built
upon it and kept steady on
the water by an outrigger -
They look unsafe but are
said to be very sea-worthy -
Friday
February 25th
Rose very Early and went on
shore to take the morning train
for Kandy but found we were
too late. We called two "catamarans"
Henry + Bella went in one
and I in the other. As we
were too late for the train we
went to the hotel for breakfast
and afterwards Henry called
on the Rev Mr Rhodes a Wesleyan
Missionary We then drove out to
the cinnamon gardens and
from there to the depot.

24
The train left at 2 in the
afternoon it seemed so natural
to be in the cars again that
I could hardly persuade
myself that I was not in
America. The scenery the first
part of the way reminded me
of that of the Isthmus of Panama,
the rest of the way was a
continual ascent up up among
the mountains until we reached
Kandy 5000 feet above the level
of the sea. The sunset was
fine and the effect of the
sunset bright over the mountains
beautiful- but before the sun
had set we passed around a
curve and the intervening
mountains hid the western sky
from us much to my disappointment.
We reached Kandy just
at dark and went to the
"Queen's hotel" to spend the night
a strange old-fashioned building.

25
Saturday
February 26th --
Rose Early and sat at the
window a long time watching
the people passing in the street
below. The view was very beautiful
just in front a little lake and
on the other shore high hills
covered with trees and one of
them crowned by a fort-
I watched with much interest
the different people passing
in their Oriental dress. Every
thing reminded me of the
descriptions I have read of Life
in India . The people are
quite unlike the Chinese and
particularly in their Erect carriage
and Elastic step so unlike
the stooping figure and shuffling
gate we are accustomed to see
in China . The Buffalo carts
were drawn by bullocks whose
sides were tattered in every
imaginable way - a kind of
open carriage unlike any I

26
have seen before in which
four can sit with their backs
toward Each other is used by
the foreigners here. The dress of
the natives is rather picturesque
and many of them wear jewelry
in profusion. We saw some
with Ear-rings all around the
ear and nose jewels . The
view from the windows of the
dining room was very pretty.
We were the only ladies at the
table . After breakfast Henry called
on Rev Mr Tebb and afterward
we went out for a drive rode
around the lake and up
and down several streets of
the town and then back to the
depot. The ride back on the
cars was hit and dusty. I could
hardly realize that we were
in India , it seemed as though
the cars must take us to
Cleveland. We reached Colombo
just at dark met the Captain and
Mr Carson at the wharf. The
Quartermaster Abernethy who had
brought them off was still at the wharf
with his boat + kindly took us on board.

27
The Sabbath -
February 27th
Spent a quiet Sabbath in the
harbor of Colombo, a very warm
day. Several of the passengers
had gone to Kandy. At breakfast
we were the only ones on board.
Monday
February 28th -
Another warm day. All
day they have been taking
on cargo barrels of coffee.
Wrote letters to send to Canton -
Remembered it as Miss Rowe's
birthday -
Tuesday
February 29th
We expected to leave Colombo
about noon but it was nearly dark
instead . We were all very glad
to be again on our way. Found
our number of passengers increased
by the addition of Mrs Graham a
lady from India and Dr
Sinclair from Burmah.

28
Wednesday
March 1st
A smooth sea pleasant
sailing in the Arabian Sea.
Thursday
March 2nd
Spent the day in reading
and helping take care of the
children --
Friday
March 3d
Read a book from the
Ship's Library "Idalia"-
Saturday
March 4th -
Just as we were sitting down
to dinner this evening heard
that the Captain's little brown
dog Toby was overboard.
After a little hesitation the ship
was put about and we went
around in a circle coming back
over our track but it was getting
dark and poor little Toby
could not be found -

29
The Sabbath -
March 5th --
My Birth-day - We had a
service to-day - the Captain
read the prayers and
lessons and Henry preached
making it seem more like
the Sabbath -
Monday
March 6th
As [u]usual[/u] nothing [u]unusual[/u]
occurred. We are still favored
in having a smooth sea.
Tuesday
March 7th
Another uneventful day
save that I rejoiced over
finding my gold pen which
had been lost for several
days.
Wednesday March 8th
Spent the day in reading +c
a beautiful moonlight Evening

30
Thursday
March 9th
This morning came on
deck to find that we were
passing the Island of Socotra.
Was told that the inhabitants
are cannibals. Towards Evening
passed the "El Dorado" a fine
large steamer --
Friday
March 10th -
This afternoon about poor
passed Aden some twenty
miles distant said to be a
most barren and desolate
looking place. The "Sultan"
passed us in the evening on
her way to India -
Saturday
March 11th -
At three in the morning
the Captain came to tell us
that we were passing though
Bab-El-mandeb. "The Gate
of Tears" We dressed and

31
went on deck as soon as
possible- The straits are
only two and a half miles
wide and the land on Either
side high and rocky looking
very dreary and barren we
were told in the daytime but
beautiful as we saw it in
the soft moonlight. Just in
the narrowest place we met
a French steamer which
suddenly changed her
course and crossed our bows
thus running the risk of a
collision and making our
officers very anxious for a
few moments- We saw a
large house built on the sand
close to the sea-shore and
were told that it is the
dwelling of the pilots of the
Red Sea. During the day
we were much of the time
in sight of islands on one
of which we were told a man

32
who Escaped from a wreck
ten or twelve years ago has
been living ever since -
and has grown to be quite
a wild man will have no
communication with any one.
We passed during the day
[u]ten[/u] steamers.
The Sabbath
March 12th-
In the Red Sea a pleasant
day and smooth sailing--
Henry preached from the
text, "And this is the confidence
that we have in Him that if
we ask anything according
to His will He heareth us"-
We met two steamers to-day -
In the eve Mrs Bergman was
taken very ill and Mrs Graham
also --
Monday
March 13th--
Cool + pleasant, a fresh breeze
blowing from the North which retards
us so that instead of 220 we are
only making 180 miles-a-day.

33
Tuesday -
March 14th
Sailing slowly up the
Red Sea spent the day in
writing letters -
Wednesday
March 15th
Another pleasant day- still
out of sight of land. The
sunsets are very beautiful.
Thursday
March 16th
Early in the morning was called
up to see Mt Sinai but found
when I got on deck that
it was still in the distance.
All day long we were sailing
in sight of land. a very
wide sand beach stretching
back from the sea, and
rising into sandy mountains
several thousand feet high
with not a shrub or tree to

34
redeem the desolate
dreary waste of sand.
Towards evening Mt Sinai
and Mt Horeb were pointed
out to us The sunset was a
very brilliant one and we
watched the sun go down
behind the mountains of
Africa - while across the Red
Sea its last rays lingered
on the top of Mt Sinai and
the neighboring mountains -
It was very beautiful and
we much enjoyed the soft
coloring of the sky and clouds.
Friday
March 17th
This being of St Patrick's day
the passengers and Officers
had agreed to celebrate
it. We spent the morning
making badges for the
gentlemen in imitation of
the Shamrock but were told

35
we did not succeed very
well. Early in the morning
we passed the locality which
is pointed out as the place
where the Israelites crossed
the Red Sea - and from its
natural features it is Easy
to believe that it is really
the place. On Either side
shut in by mountains of
sand without a single
vestige of verdure - a dreary
barren waste of sand with
Pharaoh's army pursuing them
and the sea ready to
Engulf them no way Either
to the right or the left
"shut in by the wilderness-"
weary and travel worn one
could hardly wonder that
they raised the despairing
cry. "Were there no graves in
Egypt that thou has brought
us out to die in the wilderness"-?

36
As I looked at the seemingly
Endless wastes of sand - I
realized as never before the
severity of the Israelite's punishment
to wander forty years in
such a wilderness of
desolation must have been
a fearful retribution for their
want of faith.
We reached Suez in the
morning and anchored there
for a few hours leaving at
one P.M. Suez is built
on a flat sandy plain
with a back-ground of
sandy mountains.
The steamer anchored
some distance out and
none of the passengers
went on shore. We
learned here that one of
the steamers we had met

37
a few days previous had
been wrecked off Pt de Galle
striking on a rock and going
down almost instantly -
Passengers and crew were
all [?caved?]. We Entered
the Suez Canal about one
-o-clock. It is nearly ninety
miles in length - and some
parts of the way is not wide
Enough for steamers to pass
so those that came in last
must stop in places made
wider for the purpose and
allow the others to pass them.
In this way we passed
seven. We only steamed
about five miles an hour
except in some places where
originally there were lakes
and so now the channel
is wider - I was told that
the "Priam" paid 800 pounds

38
for passing through the
canal. The passengers
dressed in their best for dinner
and all came on deck
"wearing the green" in honor
of the day. The sunset
was a very brilliant one
WE could see the reflection
of the setting sun in the
water beneath looking like
two suns meeting at the
horizon After dinner several
of the passengers had dancing
on deck ---
Saturday
March 18th
We expected to start Early
this morning but instead were
delayed by a steamer which
was coming out of the Canal
getting fast on the sand
and so we waited for
her three hours. We got
under weight about nine-o-clock.

39
and then went right on
without any hinderance .
About noon we passed Ismailia
a place which has grown
up since the Canal was
opened. There is here a
palace of the Khedive of
Egypt and also a building
which was built for the
Empress Eugenie where she
spent some time while the
work on the Canal was in
progress. We were told
that this is the locality
of the ancient Land of Goshen.
A little after Eight-o-clock
in the evening we reached
Port Said - Nearly all the
passengers went on shore--
We waited to ascertain whether
the steamer was going on or not
before morning and learning that
it probably would called a boat
and made the best of our way to a hotel.

40
We were taken first to the
Custom House where after a
great deal of jabbering we were
obliged to leave our three trunks
and then were taken to the
"Hotel d' Louvre". When we
reached there found no one who
could speak English and as
the little French we once knew
seemed to have left us we
had some difficulty in making
ourselves understood.
However we succeeded in
obtaining what we wished and
were made comfortabel for
the night. On our way to
the hotel we met and said
good-bye again to Mr [?Barlon?]
Mrs Graham Miss Gull and
Dr Sinclair and Miss Caught.
The Sabbath.
March 19th
With the morning light we
looked out upon the streets

41
of Port Said filled with
people of many different
nationalities a motley assembly
clad in nearly Every variety
of costume - This place
has also been built Entirely
since the opening of the
Canal some Eight years since.
Henry called upon Mr Percival
the English Consul. He
made inquiries for Mr Nye whose
sister was his brother's wife-
Learned that a steamer
would be leaving for Beirut
at five in the afternoon
and after some hesitation concluded
that it would be right and
best to take it, and did
so leaving Port Said at 5 P.M.
on board the French Steamer
"Tage." The steamer was
crowded with tourists and
first class accommodations all
taken up but we found

42
second class in many
respects superior to that of
the Priam -
Monday
March 20th
Wakened this morning to
find that we were just coming
to anchor in the harbor
of Jaffa - "Joppa". Jaffa
looks so exactly like pictures
I have seen of it that I
can hardly realize that
I have never seen it before.
Nearly all our passengers
went on shore as soon as
we anchored. We had a
very good view of the town
from the harbor and as
we expect to return and
sail from here when we
leave Palestine did not
go on shore -and about
six-o-clock were again on our way.

43
Tuesday -
March 21st
This morning we find
ourselves anchored in the
harbor of Beirut. The
location of the city is beautiful
encircled as it is by mountains
and looking down upon
the Mediterranean. We
called a little boat and
went on shore. Here also
we were obliged to leave
our trunks at the Custom
House while we went to a
Hotel. Henry then left us
and went to call on
Dr Jessup When he
returned he brought with
him letters and the black
margin told us before we
opened the tidings that they
brought the ending of the hope

44
so long cherished that our
dear Frank might live to
welcome us home. WE could
not read them there but waited
until some hours after in the
quiet home of kind friends we
might read them together.
We went from the hotel to
Dr Jessup's where Henry and
Bella were to stay and then
I went on to the Girl's seminary
where I received a cordial
welcome from the ladies Miss
Everett Miss Jackson and Miss
Van Dyke. They were just at
dinner when I reach there
They have a little table for
themselves in the same dining
hall where all their school-girls
take their meals at the same
time, seated around several
tables ten or a dozen at each.
They have about forty boarders
very bright intelligent looking
girls, making it seem quite
like a home school. Many of

45
the girls speak English very
well and all dress in English
costume, some of them are quite
pretty. In the evening attended
at Dr Jessup's an exhibition
of the Magic lantern over
two hundred Arabic children
were present.
Wednesday
March 22nd -
Spent the morning in
visiting with Miss Everett
and Miss Jackson the
different departments of the
school in which I was
very much interested.
In the afternoon Miss
Jackson went with us to
visit the College quite at
the other end of the twon
The buildings are very
fine and the situation
beautiful overlooking the
Mediterranean. We were
just in time to attend the
afternoon prayers and so


46
saw the students seventy
five in number all together.
Some of them are very fine
looking young men.
Met here Professor Hall and
Dr Lewis also Dr Van Dyke
who has been in Beirut for
many years and is said
to be the best Arabic scholar
in the country. On our
way back we visited a German
orphanage. They also have
a very fine large and well arranged
building . The children
were just having evening prayers
and it was a beautiful
sight to see 130 little children
in our room all one large
family singing Jesus Lover
of my Soul. There are
twelve German sisters in
charge of the Institution . It
was nearly dark when we
returned to the Seminary.
In the evening Mrs Van Dyke
with her brother Mr Henry Thompson
came and took tea with us.

Thursday
March 23d-
Spent the morning in
writing letters. In the
afternoon visited the Cemetery
near by the Seminary where
[?Phiny Fisk?] is buried. His
grave is covered by a very
plain stone only bearing his
name and age. In the
evening met at Dr Jessup's a
large number of ladies and
gentleman forty or fifty He
showed again the Magic
Lantern.
Friday
March 24th-
This morning Miss Jackson went
with me to visit the schools
of Miss Taylor and Mrs
Mott. Miss Taylor's work
seems more like ours in
China than the other
schools I have visited
not so far advanced.
She has a day school
and sixteen boarders.

48
We found the scholars of
Mrs Mott's school just gone
off for a day's holiday but
Miss [?Cupirs?] one of the teachers
kindly took us through the
rooms which are really
magnificent. Everything
is conducted on a very
expensive scale. There
are eighty girls in the
school and I was told
the Annual expense of the
school is fifty thousand
dollars- They have also
many day-schools in
different part of the country-
over 2000 scholars in all.
Returned to the seminary and
attended a service in the school
chapel . Henry talked to the girls
Dr Jessup interpreting, In the afternoon
had a pleasant call from Mrs Lewis.
Afterwards the dragoman brought
the horses for our trip for us to try them.
In the morning had a social
meeting with the school-girls in
the chapel told them about
China Miss Van Dyke interpreting

[Note: Appears to be missing a page]
Mt of Olives and near to the
place where when His ministry
on Earth was Ended he came
with His disciples and "while He
blessed them was parted from
them and a cloud received
Him from their sight into
Heaven". It seems as though
its sacred past must ever make
Mt Olivet seem nearer to Heaven
than any other spot on Earth.
We had brought our Bibles with
us and read here with new
interest the account of scenes
of which Mt Olive has been
the silent witness Down the
Eastern slope of the mountain
we looked towards Bethany hidden
from us by the rise in the ground
the home of the family that
Jesus loves - the place where
He so often came for rest and
the comforts of home and
ever found loving friends

ready to minister to his
wants. We felt it indeed a
precious privilege to spend a
few of the Sabbath in a
place hallowed by so many
sacred associations.
Monday morning we
rose Early as had planned
to ride out to Bethlehem and
return before noon. The party
of gentlemen who had been
stopping at the Hospice were
also starting this morning for
their journey up through the
country to Beirut and we
left at the same time they
walking out to the Jaffa gate
where their horses were waiting
for them . We met on our way
crowds of pilgrims and a
little distance from the city
a procession carrying flags

and banners with musical
instruments and singing the
same monotonous chant which
we hear everywhere.
A short distance from Jerusalem
we passed the tomb where so
many long centuries ago
"Jacob buried Rachel in
[--the--] the way to Ephrath which
is Bethlehem"-
Instead of going directly to
Bethlehem we visited first
Solomon's Pools three immense
reservoirs supplied with water
from a fountain at a little
distance. The water from
these reservoirs was conveyed
by an aqueduct to the city
Near by are the ruins of a
summer house and Extensive
gardens the whole dating
back to the time of
Solomon -

A ride of an hour or so
brought us to Bethlehem
which is much more thriving
and prosperous in appearance
than the towns of Palestine
generally a place containing
several thousand inhabitants
but I was surprised to learn
that there is not among them
a single Jew. We called at
the house of the Rev Mr Miller a
German missionary who has
been living in Bethlehem for
seventeen years . He invited
us to visit his schools has a
large number of day-scholars
and fifteen boarders, two of
them a boy and girl are
Bedouins He has gathered
a church of about thirty members.
Nearly all the Bethlehemites
of to-day are Roman Catholics.
Mr Miller went with us to
the Church of the Nativity
Here as elsewhere we found

crowds of pilgrims.
The [--church--] chapel is
about thirty-six feet long
and ten wide - and at
the Eastern end there is a
marble slab inserted in
the floor in the middle of
which is a silver star
Encircled by an inscription
in Latin. "Here Jesus Christ
was born of the Virgin Mary-"
Over this star sixteen silver
lamps are kept burning.
An intelligent looking
well dressed man in appearance
quite unlike the mass of the
pilgrims was kneeling on
the pavement as we approached
the place and after kissing
the star repeatedly he rose
and went to kneel by the
side of the manger a few
feet distant If the original

manger ever occupied
the place designated it is
now replaced by one of marble.
Under the same roof we
were shown the tomb of Jerome
and the room in which it is
said he studied and wrote.
A large building connected
with the Church of the Nativity
called the Basilica dates back
to the year 327 and is said
to be the oldest place of
worship in the world.
Returning to Mr Miller's he
pointed out to us the place
where the shepherds were
keeping watch over their flocks
by night when the angel of the
Lord appeared unto them
bringing "tidings of great joy
peace on Earth good will toward
men," and also the valley
where long years ago Ruth

gleaned in the fields of
Boaz. Our visit to Bethlehem
was necessarily shorter than
we could have wished but there
were many other interesting
places to visit. It was nearly
two when we reached the city
and after taking dinner we
remounted our horses to ride
to Bethany. Passing through
the Damascus Gate on the
North side of the city we
rode around the wall to
the East then along the valley
of Jehoshaphat across the
brook Kedron followed the
road over the Mt of Olives
to Bethany no doubt the
same road over which the
Saviour so often walked
as he went out to Bethany
the same road that David
when fleeing from his wicked
and ungrateful son "went

up the ascent by the Mt
of Olives and wept as he
went up having his head
covered and all the people
with him covered every man
his head and they went
up weeping as they went up."
Passing a little beyond the
summit of Olivet we came
in sight of Bethany situated
on its Eastern slope. It is but
a small village only a few
poor little houses but its past
has left it a rich legacy of
hallowed associations - and
the visitor forgets Everything
Else in remembering that here
the Saviour used often to come
and that it was the home
of "Martha and her sister
and Lazarus whom Jesus
loved-" We were guided to
a little enclosure the door
of which was locked but

a woman soon came
with a key to open it and
tell us that it is the place
where once stood the house of
Mary and Martha. Near
by a little building Evidently
built quite recently was pointed
out to us as the house of Simon.
The place is enclosed by a
high wall which shuts it in
from the rest of the village
and is a quiet little spot
the ground covered with soft
green grass the place of all
in the little village one would
like best to remember as having
been once the home of the family
that Jesus loves. From
this place we were taken a
little distance to the tomb
of Lazarus, a cave down
into which our guide led us
lighting the way with a taper.
It seems to be a natural

cave and at the foot
of the stone steps leading
down into it is a little square
chamber to Enter which we
were obliged to stoop very low.
It did not seem as though it
is probable that this was the
place where Lazarus was laid
but of course it is possible
that it may have been.
A crowd of little children
followed us begging for
"baksheesh" it seemed with
more than ordinary persistency.
Eager to hold our horses or
do something to secure the
coveted reward. Before we
dismounted my horse without
giving me any warning of
his intentions lay down
Evidently with the idea of
having a good roll regardless
of my comfort or wishes -
I scrambled away from
him more quickly than

gracefully I imagine
and fortunately was not hurt
at all. I had been told
that this was a trick some
of the Arab horses have.
This horse was one procured
in the morning in Jerusalem
not the one that I had on
the way down through the
country. Early in the morning
I had discovered another brick
of his which was to catch the
bit between his teeth and
hold it firmly and there
have his own way regardless of
the ruins - On our way
back to the city we stopped
to visit the Tombs of the Prophets
on the western slope of Mt
Olivet. The entrance is a
small opening in the ground
so very small that at first
we could hardly believe it was
really the entrance to the
place that had been described

to us. But once through
the Entrance we found ourselves
in a large chamber hewn
out of the rock with [--numerous--] many
galleries extending in different
direction in the outer wall of
which are hewn numerous recesses
for receiving the coffins of the
dea. There are no inscriptions
of any kind to aid the traveller
in his conjectures as to their
antiquity of these tombs - [--and--]
Doubtless they have sometime
in the past been occupied but
are now Empty - all traces of
the living who constructed them
and the dead who slept here
have been swept away and
the traveller can only wonder
and speculate[--s--] as to the secrets
histories buried here which the
silent walls will never reveal.
No one supposes that they were
ever what their name would
indicate the resting place of
any of the prophets.
It is said that much of the
ground about Jerusalem is

hollow and on every hand
are graves hewn in the rocks.
Leaving the Tombs of the
Prophets we descended the
slope of Olivet crossed the
valley of Jehoshaphat then
followed the city wall around
its southern limit to the Jaffa
Gate on the Western side which
we reached a little after
sunset.
Tuesday Morning we
rose as soon as it was light
so as to have the pleasure of a
morning walk out to Bethany.
We reached the top of the
Mount of Olives just in time
to see the sun rise over the
distant mountains. The view
was beautiful in the soft morning
light the barren mountains of
the wilderness of Judea did
not look as painfully barren
as when scorched by the mid-day

sun. It seemed but a
little way down to the Dead
Sea and the mountains of
Moab beyond and on the
other side we looked across
to the Mediterranean which we
were told could be distinctly
seen in a clear day but this
morning was too hazy for us
to see it- We remembered
Josephus' description of the
beauty of Solomon's Temple
as seen in the morning sunlight
and as we looked towards
Jerusalem the words rose to our
lips as they had so often before.
"[u]Beautiful for situation[/u] the
joy of the whole Earth is Mount
Zion-" The situation of
Jerusalem is unlike that of
any other city I have ever
seen. Surrounded by
mountains and built upon
a mountain the city itself
is 22000 feet above the

level of the sea only
900 feet lower than the
highest point in England.
Here we can understand
the force and beauty of the
words of Holy Writ. "As the
mountains are round about
Jerusalem so the Lord is
round about his people from
henceforth even forever-
As we looked over the
rugged mountains of
the wilderness of Judea
our thoughts went back to
the long ago when David
pursued by the revengeful
Saul so often sought and
found a refuge amid
this rocky fastnesses.
Leaving the summit of
Olivet we continued our
walk down its eastern

slope until we were
"near to Bethany". We
did not go down into the
village but sat down for a
little time on the hillside
above it and thought how
much we should like to
know the very spot from which
Christ ascended to Heaven.
The Church of the Ascension
on the summit of Mt Olivet
is supposed to be built on the
spot but it is only a supposition
and it did not seem to me
a probably one. It is in full
view from Jerusalem and I
could not make it seem
like the place the Saviour would
have chose- and according
to the account ^as given by Luke
"He led them out as far as
Bethany"- While sitting here
a company of pilgrims with
banners + flags and their

usual accompaniment of
music passed through the
streets of the village. It was a
very sad sight so similar to
the processions we so often see
in heathen lands. We waited
until they had passed then
taking a farewell glance
at Bethany and its
surroundings- turned away
and retracted our steps taking
the road which led around
the southern slop of Mt
Olivet and across the valley
reaching the city gate a
little before Eight.
After breakfast we went out
with a guide to explore the
great quarry underneath
the city. We found the
entrance near the Damascus
Gate. Our guide had provided
us all with candles by whose
light we followed him through
the great subterranean quarry

which is one of the wonders
of the city. Some writers have
penetrated to the distance of
seven hundred and fifty feet
from the entrance - In some
places we found water dripping
from the rocks and forming
stalactites. It is supposed
by many that from this
quarry were procured the
stones for building the Temple.
From here we went some
distance farther to visit the
"Tombs of the Kings." These
are more extensive than the
Tombs of the Prophets and
like them are hewn out of
the solid rock. We descended
into a court at one end of
which was the entrance -
A kind of portico over it
was very elaborately carved
These tombs are all empty
now and are supposed

never to have been the
tombs of the Jewish Kings
some think they may have
belonged to the line of Herod.
The entrance to the
Tombs was closed by a
large flat stone circular
like a mill stone and
fitting in a groove in the
solid rock- and looking
at this we understood just
[--how--] what was meant by
rolling a stone to the door of
the sepulchre. From these
Tombs we returned to the
city and in the afternoon
went out again visiting
some of the shops where
Olive wood is sold. It is a
wood susceptible of a very
fine polish and many
beautiful articles are made
from it. In one of the
shops belonging to a Jew we

were shown a large collection
of curious relics of antiquity-
which he had collected.
From a court just in the
rear of his shop we had a
good view of the Pool of
Hezekiah. We next visited
a large underground cistern
descending a stone stairway
counting the steps of which
I think there were sixty-three.
There are many of these
subterranean cisterns under
the city we were told.

Wednesday April 11th
This morning we started Early
to walk out to the Pool of
Siloam which we
already had pointed out
to us several times but had
only seen from a distance.
It is on the East side of the
city in the Valley of Jehoshaphat
The water flows from an
artificial basin formed under
a cliff into a larger reservoir
53 feet long by 18 feet wide
and 19 deep. Stone steps
lead down to the water.
Like many other places
in Palestine the Pool of Siloam
is interesting only for the sacred
association which are
inseparably linked with
its name - The Village
of Siloam is a collection
of miserable little buildings

on the slope of the
hill across the valley.
At a short distance from
the pool stands a sycamore
tree which is said to mark
the spot where Isaiah
was martyred and not
far distant [?En Ragel?] "the
Wall of the Spies-"
Returning to the city we
climbed up the steep hill
and followed the path
along the city wall to
St Stephen's Gate- Near
this gate outside the walls
is pointed out the place
where Stephen the first martyr was stoned
The Pool of Bethesda is
by many supposed to have
been [--near the Gate--] in this locality. There
is still a large reservoir
300 feet in length ^+75 deep but
there has been no water
in it for more than two

hundred years and it
is now half filled with
rubbish. Some think
a more probable location
is a little distance North
of the Gate outside the
walls- but like many other
places only certain knowledge
has been swept away be
the passing years -
Later in the day we
visited again some of the
Olive wood shops in the city
and in the afternoon went
to a place near the Jaffa
Gate to see a model of the
Jewish Tabernacle made
"according to the pattern
given to Moses in the mount"
It was very complete
and every thing made
as nearly as possible like
the original with the

court included it was
perhaps ten feet long and
four or five wide.
It was nearly five-o-clock
when we returned and
then we went out for a last
visit to the Mt of Olives
and the Garden of Gethsemane
We went down the
Via Dolorosa and out of
St Stephen's Gate crossed
the brook Kedron then
passing by the Garden of
Gethsemane along the
pathway which leads out
to Bethany. About half
way up the Mt of Olives
we sat down and sang
some of the sweet hymns
which seem to bring
Heaven so near linking
the present with the bright

[Note: Appears to be missing a page]
Saturday morning a heavy
shower of rain prevented us
from going into the streets
but in the afternoon the clouds
cleared away and we went
to the Church of the Holy
Sepulchre. It is an immense
structure dating from the
time of Constantine more
than fifteen hundred years
ago and is said to cover
or contain within its limits
a fabulous number of memorable
places. the place where the the
cross stood the Sepulchre where
Christ was buried the tombs
of Adam, Melchizedek, Joseph
Nicodemus a block of white
marble the stone on which
the angel who announced
Christ's resurrection the stone
on which the body of the
Saviour was laid to be

anointed. a part of the
pillar of flagellation, several
of the rocks [?rent?] at the
time of the crucifixion and
many others Equally improbable.
We found the place crowded
to overflowing with pilgrims
from Every part of the world
the whole a scene of dreadful
confusion that made one
glad to remember that
there is little reason to believe
that the church is really
built as it claims to be upon
Mt Calvary . Many of the
pilgrims carried palm
branches it being the Saturday
before Palm Sunday, and
they crowded and jostled
Each other most unceremoniously
in their efforts to get near
enough to kiss the spots
which tradition marks
as sacred -

A large force of Turkish
soldiers was stationed through
the building to preserve order.
There was some sort of service
being held at the time we were
there and a large choir
singing a monotonous chant
which could be heard above
all the confusion of sounds
but the whole seemed to me
the nearest approach to Babel
that I have ever seen . It
was an intensely painful
scene and I was glad
indeed to leave the place.
From here we found our
way out to St Stephen's gate
on the Eastern side of the
city towards Gethsemane
and the Mt of Olives.
Crossing the valley of
Jehoshaphat and passing
over the brook Kedron by a

little bridge we reached at
the foot of the Mt of Olives the
place which is now Enclosed
as the garden of Gethsemane.
The little door in the wall
was opened for us by a monk
the only person we saw within
the enclosure where the peaceful
quiet was in delightful contrast
with the noisy scene of confusion
we had just left. Whether
this is really the place where
the garden of Gethsemane
was eighteen hundred years
ago or not we know that it
must be very near it if not
the very spot. Within the
enclosure are Eight olive
trees which bear the marks
of great age.
We lingered in the garden
until the setting sun reminded
us that we had been told

that the gates of the city
are closed at sunset with
the exception of one the
Jaffa Gate which remains
open during the night.
A guard is kept at all
the gates. This being the
evening of the Feast of the
Passover our host had offered
to try and obtain permission
for us to be present from
some Jewish family but
failed as they naturally
preferred to be without the
presence of strangers -
We enjoyed instead a
pleasant visit with a party
of five American gentlemen
who had been spending
several days at the Hospice
and were preparing for their
journey through the country
north-ward leaving Jerusalem

on Monday and planning
for a tour of nearly five
weeks. Four of them are
clergyman representing nearly
as many denominations
Baptist Presbyterian, Methodist.
Evidently a most congenial
party and I could hardly
help envying them the pleasure
they had in store in the
five weeks before them -
Our Sabbath in
Jerusalem was a bright
beautiful day. I was up
just in time to see the sun
rise over Mt Olivet. We
attended the morning service
in the English Church and
listened to an excellent
discourse preached by a
converted Jew from the
text. And Jesus sat ever
against the treasury-"

It was a sermon that would
have been impressive anywhere
but it seemed to me far more
so in Jerusalem -
The chapel in which we
were worshipping is built
upon Mt Zion and near
the place where it is supposed
the Saviour met with his
disciples on that last Evening
the night on which He
was betrayed. The church
was well filled and I
was glad to learn that the
majority of the congregation
were Jews - and more than
one hundred of the members
of the church. Before the
service a little child was
baptized - We enjoyed
the music one of the hymns
sung was "Children of the
Heavenly King" and the
closing one was a beautiful

and touching lament for
the present sad state of
Jerusalem. The venerable
Bishop Gobat who has labored
in Jerusalem for more than
thirty years was present and
led in prayer and pronounced
the benediction -
In the afternoon we went
out "a Sabbath day's journey
to the Mt of Olives." From
its summit the view of Jerusalem
is beautiful. Mt Olivet being
higher than the mountains on
which the city is built overlooks
it and Every place of interest
can be distinctly seen -
The Church of the Ascension
and a few other buildings
now stand on the summit
of Mt Olivet - Passing there
we went over and sat down
on the side towards the
Jordan -

From here we could look
over the intervening mountains
of the wilderness of [--the--] Judea
to the Dead Sea apparently
but a few miles distant and
beyond it clearly defined
rose the mountains of Moab.
We could see plainly the
valley of the Jordan and
trace its course for some distance
and looked off towards the
location of Jericho hidden from
us by the mountains between.
Beyond the Jordan we noticed
what seemed to be two passes
through the mountain ranges
Eastward and wondered if
through Either of them the
Israelites found their way
down to the Jordan and
which of the mountain summits
that our eyes now rested on
was the one from which Moses
was permitted to look over into the

Promised Land Northward
the mountains of Ephraim
reminded us of the way
which we had come from
Galilee down through Samaria
and we thought of Mary
Magdalena and the other
women who followed Jesus
from Galilee a long journey
it must have been for them
we had been nearly a
week in making it. The
Sabbath previous we had passed
beside the Sea of Galilee and
now in Jerusalem the two
places where the Saviour spent
the greater part of the three
years of His ministry and
we had doubtless passed
over the same road in
coming down over which
he used to journey often
with the chosen twelve -
And now we were on the

[Note: Appears to be missing a page]
future . and as we
were taking our farewell
of Jerusalem and its
surroundings our thoughts
naturally turned backward
to its memorable past.
and forward to the
New Jerusalem -
Leaving Mt Olivet we
came down through the
Valley of Jehoshaphat and
climbed up the steep hill
until we stood just outside
the city wall[--s--] which is
supposed in the S.E. corner
to stand just where
the old temple wall
did. And under the
shadow of these walls
we sung Glorious things
of Three are spoken
Zion city of one God.

The sun was setting
and dark clouds
gathering in the west
but the sunset coloring
flashed clear across the
sky and lighted up the
clouds in the East above
Mt Olivet making a
beautiful picture for us
to remember. We had
not time to linger here
and fearing that St
Stephens Gate would already
be closed we followed the
wall across south of the city
then up the western side
to the Jaffa Gate
reaching there a little
after dark -

Our last morning in
Jerusalem We had arranged
everything the day before
so that we might start
Early fo[--u--]r our ride to
Joppa nearly forty miles.
We had saddle horses
and a mule and donkey
to carry the luggage
under the charge of a Nubian
a good natured looking
fellow. Mr Atterbury who had
just come back from a
trip to the Dead Sea
again joined our company
and Abraham came to see
us start and say good-bye.
The morning was dark and
heavy clouds seemed to
prophecy a rainy day,
We rode once more through
the narrow streets across the
city to the Jaffa Gate.
A carriage road has been
made from Jerusalem to
Joppa or Jaffa as it is now

whose sides the effect of the
changing lights and shadows
as the clouds drifted over them
was most beautiful As we
came near to Ramleh our
weary steeds quickened their
steps evidently thinking they
were near a resting place.
The [--ap--] city presents a fine
appearance as seen at a
distance across the pain but
as we dress nearer it seemed
less invited and when we
reached the convent where
travellers are accustomed to stop
we concluded we would rather
go on to Joppa than spend
the night there. Ramleh is
the Arimathea of old and
interesting as having been the
birth place of Samuel and in
later years the home of Joseph
of Arimathea. It was once
a large walled city with twelve
gates next to Jerusalem in size
+ importance but now contains
only 5000 inhabitants. Just
before reaching here we had
passed near Lydda where
Eneas was healed by Peter.
The distance from Ramleh to

Joppa we travelled slowly as both
we and our steeds were very tired.
On the way we passed near the
sites of Gaza + Ashdod to the
south of our road. We met long
trains of camels some loaded
with stone + many donkeys with
loads of the fine oranges for
which Jaffa is not larger
than I have ever seen elsewhere
Towards evening as we passed
the orange groves near the city
the air seemed loaded with
the fragrance of the blossoms.
It was after dark when we
reached Jaffa and we
were quite tired enough to
appreciate fully a comfortable
resting place .
Friday -
The morning we spent in
arranging and repacking
the trunks which we had left
at Beirut to be sent down to
us. We were too tired to go out
in the streets and there is
little of interest in the town.
The house is still shown
which is said to have
been that of [illegible] the [illegible]

Saturday
March 25th 1876.
This morning found us with our
arrangements all made and
Everything in readiness to start
four our long anticipated tour
through Palestine It was nearly
nine-o-clock when our horses
were brought and then we said
good-bye to the kind friends in
Beirut and with parting glances
at the surroundings which in a few
days had grown to look quite
familiar to us mounted and turned
our faces southward toward the
"Land of Promise" Our dragoman
who had contracted to be our
guide and protector during the
next two weeks supply all our wants
and see us safe inside the walls of
Jerusalem answered to the name of
"Abraham Elias [?Sraaf?]" and unlike
most of the dragomen was dressed in
English costume, a suit of gray
somewhat the worse for wear.
His knowledge of the English language
we found to be quite limited and
our attempts at conversation were

consequently rather unsatisfactory
although as he generally claimed
to be able to understand all that
we said to him we could not well
do less than to try and appear as
though we understood him and
he never seemed to be at a loss for
words of some sort to express his
meaning. We had a pleasant
morning for the commencement
of our journey, and passing through
the streets of Beirut were soon
out in the open country. The
scenery was very beautiful on our
right we could see not far distant
the blue waters of the Mediterranean
and on our left the mountain
ranges rising higher and higher
and beyond all the snow capped
peaks of Lebanon. The mountains
are terraced and well cultivated
which gives them a much more fertile
appearance as seen from the summit
than the base and their sides are
dotted with numerous villages -
Near the city we passed some beautiful
pine groves and much of the way on
both sides of the road were hedges of
cactus often higher than our heads
while many varieties of wild flowers
were blossoming at our feet.
For a little way the road wound

through cultivated fields and
then led us down to the sea shore
and all the rest of the day we rode
by the sea sometimes so near on the
sandy beach that the waves as they
came in washed over our horses' feet.
We stopped at noon for lunch in a
grove of oleanders, and near the
place which tradition marks as the
spot where Jonah and the whale
parted company. After resting here
for about an hour we remounted
and pursued our way sometimes
across the sands and sometimes
along the stony hill-sides. The
sun was setting when we reached
Sidon and our long ride of twenty
siz miles had not made us too
weary to enjoy the beautiful sunset
light over the Mediterranean, the
ancient city before us and the hills
and mountains beyond. We found
our tents pitched in an open space
near a mozlem cemetery just outside
the city walls. There were already
two tents there which we afterwards
learned were occupied by Mr Atterbury
from New York and an English
gentleman Mr Le Merchant
Our tents were not quite ready

for us and while sitting outside
on some camp stools waiting for
Abraham to arrange the interior
of the tent we had an opportunity
of seeing our baggage train which
had come on before us, consisting
of several mules a donkey and
two horses. Abraham's followers and
assistants were five in number his
own personal attendant "the lunch
boy" Hassan who was quite a
character "Omar" an Arabic Turk
a quiet pleasant fellow. Joseph
the cook whose failings and short
comings were a never failing source
of vexation to Abraham and two
muleteers or "Mukkars" as Abraham
called them "Jarius" who always
seemed to be trying to see which
would open widest his eyes or his mouth
and "Abou-habib" a little old man.
Animals and men seemed to vie
with Each other in making a
noise and the tinkling mule-bells
the braying of the donkey and
the shouting of the men in
chorus was sometimes very effective.
As we came into camp the dragoman
of the other party "Joseph" who was

a friend of Abraham's fired a
salute of welcome and during the
evening several shorts were fired to
inform "All whom it may concern"
that the parties then and there
encamped were provided with weapons
of defence and prepared to use them
in case it should be necessary.
We were told that a party encamped
on the same ground only a week or
two previous had been robbed in the
night of a number of articles and
considerable money. We were
pleased to find our tents much
more comfortable than we had Expected.
It was lined with bright colored
calico a carpet spread over the
ground inn bedsteads with comfortable
mattress a table with a pretty cover and
several camp stools made it seem
quite cozy and home-like .
Abraham furnished us a good
dinner to which we did full justice-
We retired Early as nearly nine
hours in the saddle had made
us feel ready to Enjoy and
appreciate a long night's rest.

The Sabbath .
March 26th
A beautiful Sabbath morning
I was up just in time to see the sun
rising over the mountains.
Henry sent to Dr Eddy a note
which he had brought for him from
Dr Jessup and about nine-o-clock
he called and invited us all to
go and spend the day with them
an invitation which we were glad
to accept. As Mr Atterbury had come
over Early in the morning to inquire
whether there would be any service
in the city Henry asked him to go
with us and attend the Arabic service.
A short walk brought us to Dr Eddy's
house outside the city and close to the
sea-shore built according to the custom
here with a large open court and rooms
opening into it from Every side,
Miss Eddy met us with a cordial
welcome and soon her Mother came
in with her daughter Mary and a
younger sister. They have two sons
now studying in America one of whom
expects soon to join them in the
mission work in Sidon. After
a few minutes conversation we went
with them to the morning service
in the native chapel stopping
on the way to look into the room which

is used for the beginning of their
Orphanage a new Enterprise They
have now seven girls in this department.
The service in the chapel was
well attended Dr Eddy preached
from the text "Peace I leave with
you my peace I give unto you."
Four little children were baptized
their parents having recently united
with the church. The girls from
the Boarding School twenty seven
in number were present with their
teachers. After service returned to
Dr Eddy's. Mrs Eddy insisted on
Mr Atterbury's remaining to dinner
and sent a messenger to ask
Mr Le Merchant to join us which
he did. In the afternoon Mrs Eddy
met a Bible Class eleven the larger
girls of the Boarding School.
They seemed interested in hearing
a little of China. Miss Eddy taught
at the same time a class of small
girls and after their lessons were
finished all came into the
parlor and sung a few hymns.
Afterwards Henry with Dr Eddy
and his daughters went to another
service in the chapel and Henry

told them something of China
and our work there .
After their return we sang together
some of the sweet songs we all love
"Sweet Bye and Bye" "Sowing the Seed"
"Safe within the Vail" and others.
The windows of the room in
which we were looked westward
towards the setting sun and when
its last rays were quenched in the
waters of the Mediterranean in the
darkening twilight we knelt in prayer
and thanked our Father for the
sweet quiet Sabbath. He had given us.
In the evening we met again the
girls of the Boarding School in their
own school room and heard Dr
Eddy examine them on their Scripture
lessons of the past week. We were
very glad to see the building which
has just been purchased for the use
of the school and which seems
well adapted to the purpose -
It was nearly nine-o-clock when
we said good-bye to our friends
and following our guide through
the narrow dirty streets soon
reached the place outside the
city walls where our tents were pitched.

Monday.
March 27th.
We were up Early and had our
breakfast of coffee bread and Eggs
our tents taken down and Every-
thing ready to move by a little after
seven. As Messrs, Le-Merchant and
Atterbury were going the same way
that we were they joined their forces
with [illegible] so we had all together quite
a company , two dragomen, nine
men, and twenty two horses mules
and donkeys. Just after we started
we met Dr Eddy and Mary coming
down to say good-bye. Our two
dragomen made quite a display
of their fire-arms. "Joseph" was dressed
in the loose Turkish trousers and
short jacket, and carried a long
gun slung behind his back a
sword and a number of pistols
stuck in his sash. Abraham had
a gun and a pistol which in
the course of the morning went off
accidentally. They made
several attempts to shoot the birds
which started up as we rode along
but their fire-arms seemed to be
very unreliable and we concluded

we had better not expect much
protection from them - They
seemed to handle them so
carelessly that we felt that our
chief danger would be from some
of their pieces discharging their contents
at an unexpected moment in an
unexpected direction -and insisted
that they should not carry them
loaded. About ten-o-clock we
passed the [?sitE of?] the ancient Zarephath
now only marked by two or three
poor little buildings Here was
once the "Zarephath which belongeth
to Zidon" the city of the widow who
furnished a refuge and home
to Elijah for many days.
At noon we stopped an hour or
so for lunch near an old ruined
khan, and then resumed our
way along the shores of the
Mediterranean in "the coasts of
Tyre and Sidon." In the
afternoon we came in sight
of Tyre the ancient "Mistress
of the Seas" now only retaining
the name and site of its former
grandeur. The city seems to
rise out of the sea being built

on what was formerly an
island. When Alexander
besieged the city he built a causeway
to it from the main land and
the sand has now filled in the
intervening space changing it
into a peninsula. We found
our tents close to the sea-shore
near those of another party which
had reached the camping ground
in advance of us. The English
flag floated over their tents and
Mr Le Merchant found that they
were an English gentleman
with his daughters who he had
met travelling on the Nile a short
time previous. Many of the children
from the city came out to see us
and gathered around us determined
to gratify their curiosity and secure
some "Vaksheesh" if possible; They
were mostly ragged and dirty, and
many of them had very peculiar
hair looking as though it had
faded, only partially retaining
the original color. The custom
of tattooing the face and arms
disfigures very much many
of the women and girls --

A ride of a few hours brought
us to the White Promontory "Albrun
Promontorium" where a road has
been out in the solid limestone
rock which at this point rises
abruptly from the sea forming
a natural barrier to travel by
land. The road which had
been made is very steep and
rocky. We stopped for a few
moments at its highest point
nearly three hundred feet above
the level of the sea which seemed
as we looked down the perpendicular
side of the white limestone rock
to be directly beneath us -
From here the view was beautiful
looking backward we could see
Tyre almost surrounded by
the sea across the plain of
Tyre the mountains North and
Eastward Lebanon and Hermon.
and down the steep cliffs at our
feet we looked into the clear depths
of the Mediterranean stretching
westward as far as the eye
could follow and over all the
bright sunlight and the
beautiful blue sky.-

I would gladly have lingered
longer here but there were still
many miles to travel before we
would reach the end of our
day's journey so taking a farewell
glance we began the descent trusting
to our sure-footed little horses to
select the safest footing -
A little farther on we stopped
for our midday rest in a quiet
shady place and Abraham
spread our lunch for us under
the spreading branches of what
he told us was a juniper tree
Soon after noon we reached
the "Tyrian Ladder." Here a
road has been cut along the
mountain side so rocky and
steep as to give it the appropriate
name of "Scala Tyria."
This forms the boundary between
Phoenicia and the Promised
Land and here as we turned
southward our eyes rested on the
goodly inheritance of Asher
the beautiful fertile plain of
Acre bounded by the long
mountain range of Carmel.

We passed during the afternoon
many beautiful olive orchards
and fields of waving grain and
towards evening a very large orange
grove the trees loaded with finest
oranges. Just before reaching Acre
we saw a long aqueduct built by one
of the preceding rulers- extending
a long way out from the city.
It was quite late when we
reached our camping ground .
The tents were pitched in an
enclosure near a military Encampment
and when we entered ours we
found it already occupied by
such a swarm of flies that it
seemed as though there would
hardly be room for us.
However when it became dark
they took up their lodging
in the upper part of the
tent leaving us in undisturbed
posession of the remainder.
Wednesday
March 29th
This morning the sky was
overcast and seemed to promise
us a wet day. Before the tents

were taken down the drops of
rain began to fall and the
prospect of riding in the rain
did not seem very inviting.
We took out the oil-cloth water-proofs
with which we had provided
ourselves but finally concluded
not to put them on unless it
became absolutely necessary.
We were not sorry to leave our
camping ground to the army
of flies which had shared with
us in the posession of it. but it
was nearly Eight-o-clock before we
were in the saddle and reasy
to bid adieu to Acre. Our road
all the morning lay along the
beach and I enjoyed a good canter
across the sands. We saw numerous
jelly fish of a deep blue color which
the receding waves left upon the
sand, and several kinds of spells.
The clouds hung over us dark and
threatening all the morning
and seemed at times just ready
to pour their contents down upon
us but we escaped without a
shower. At one time we saw a
water-spout rise out of the sea
apparently some miles distant.

All the way just before us rose
Mt Carmel and we soon came
in sight of the little town of
Haifa near its base where a
colony of Germans has settled
who have come to Palestine to
wait for the coming of Christ.
We had been nearly three hours
in coming around the bay a
long circuit by land but as we
looked back from Haifa to Acre
it seemed a very short distance
across the water. We passed
through the town of Haifa a
part of which is occupied by the
Germans referred to. Over the
doors of their houses were printed
texts of Scriptures as Psalms 15-1
"Lord who shall abide in the tabernacle
who shall dwell in thy holy hill."
Passing out of the town our road
lay through a beautiful olive
grove. The olive trees are very
pretty and their large gnarled
knotted trunks give them a
picturesque appearance - the
leaf is small and narrow similar
to that of the willow .I am told
the olive trees often live to be

a thousand years old -
In the orchards the trees are
planted in regular rows and
do not seem to interfere at all
with the cultivation of the ground
beneath them which is often
covered with a flourishing crop
of wheat, barley, or lentiles.
We dismounted here and led
our horses along the path
under the shade of the olive
trees on our right looking down
over a beautiful cultivated plain
some of the fields covered with
waving grain and others where
the soil was only freshly turned
waiting for the sower and beyond
the blue waters of the Mediterranean
while on the left we looked up
the rugged sides of Mt Carmel
to where its summit seemed to
touch the sky above us.
Soon the path began to ascend
and up a steep stony way along
the side of the precipitous mountain
our horses carried us safely up to
the convent of the Carmelite monks
1500 feet above the level of the sea,
The view from the top of the

mountain is beautiful beyond
description WE could still see
the snowy heights of Mt Hermon
and Lebanon far away to the
North, across the bay of Acre it
seemed but a little way to the
city we had left in the morning
at our feet the beautiful fertile
plain sloping down to meet the
Mediterranean its waters now so
calm and unruffled we could
hardly imagine it could ever be
stirred by the breath of the tempest.
But on our way we had passed
the wrecks of several vessels and
it is said that just here is a
very dangerous place for shipping
when there is a storm from
the North-West. We took our lunch
on a little grassy slope just outside
the convent walls and soon
after one of the monks came and
invited us to come in and see the
hospice attached to the convent.
Ladies are not admitted inside
the convent proper but we were
allowed to go through the rooms
which are for the use of travellers
who often spend the night here.

Mr LE-Merchant could converse
with the monk in Italian -
He worse a suit of coarse brown
cloth with a rope tied around
his waist and wooden sandals.
WE all wrote our names in the
Visitor's book and partook of some
sweet syrup and coffee which an
attendant brought. We were
afterwards taken into the church
which is only used on special
occasions as there are but fourteen
monks [?hiring?] in the convent. The
monk knelt before an image of the
Virgin Mary arrayed in royal
robes with the infant Saviour in
her arms - before which a number
of wax candles were burning.
There were several tablets inserted
in the walls, one recorded the
fact that some years before a
nobleman I think from Italy
had brought his Father's heart to
the Convent to be buried here.
From the chapel we descended
some stone steps and were
shown into the "grotto of Elias"
a natural cave where Elijah

is said to have lived when at
Mt Carmel. Here was an image
of bronze representing Elijah
and before this the munk knelt
again on the stone floor. Here
also candles were burning and a
large flat rock was shown us
which is said to have been
Elijah's bed. It all appeared
so much like a heathen temple
that it seemed very sad indeed
and I was glad to turn away
from a place which if it were
once the home of the prophet Elijah
seems now so desecrated -
We spent nearly two hours on
Mt Carmel, gathered a few of
the bright colored wild flowers
growing just outside the convent
walls and then began to think
of descending. Down the steep
mountain side we walked leading
our horses then when again on
level ground mounted and
rode back through the olive
groves the town of Haifa across
the sandy beach and forded
again "the brook Kishon" then

turning away from the
Mediterranean struck across
the country Eastward on our way
to Nazareth. For a little way we
waded through deep sand-banks
but soon left them behind us
and began to ascend the hills -
and all the afternoon our road
led us along the hillsides and
across plains and valleys the
scenery about us seeming to grow
more beautiful Every moment.
The air was fragrant with the
breath of the countless wild flowers
which blossomed at our feet and
covered the hill-sides their bright
colors in beautiful contrast with
the green grass and gray rocks
Scarlet anemones bright little
adonis or pheasant's Eyes. sweet
mignonette, pure white daisies hyacinths
bachelor's buttons convolvulus and
many others that I regretted
I could not call by name
were blossoming in the richest
profusion Everywhere. We had
been told that we should find
the country beautiful so Early in

the spring but it was far more
so than I had anticipated.
it seemed indeed "Beautiful
as the garden of the Lord," and
I could not but rejoice in the thought
that in the midst of her desolation
God still loves to clothe His chosen
land in garments of beauty.
Towards Evening we came over
the brow of a hill and saw in the
valley before us the village of Shefa-
Omar and near by a beautiful
grove of olive trees and here our
tents were pitched. We were
delighted to find them in such
a pleasant spot and much
enjoyed the quiet loveliness of
our surroundings. Just beyond
the village was a ruined castle
and across the road at a little
distance from us a well to
which the village maidens were
coming with their water-pots on
their heads and here the
shepherds brought their herds
and flocks. For an hour
or two near Evening there was

quite a company gathered
about the well and as we
watched them our thoughts
naturally recalled the Bible
narrative of Rachel and
Rebekah at the well.
Early in the afternoon we had
passed near "Cana of Galilee"
a little distance south of our
road. A beautiful clear
starlight Evening closed a day
which had been full of interest
and pleasure ------
Thursday
March 30th
This morning we left almost
reluctantly our beautiful camping
ground. WE had not gone
far when on a stony hill-side
my horse slipped lost his footing
and fell instantly. Fortunately
neither of us were hurt at all
but were up again in a moment
and I remounted him with
an injunction to be more careful
in future. I liked my horse

very much although he was
rather too much inclined to
have his own way which did
not always happen to be mine.
He was quite small and a
pretty-[?bay?]. I named him "Zhameel"
Arabic for beautiful but his
persistent determination to bring
up the rear at all times and
under all circumstances nearly
Earned for him the appellation
of Finis. The impression that
he was lazy seemed to be prevalent
and Abraham's parting injunction
as he helped me into the saddle
generally was "Beat him. beat
him good." Poor little "Zhameel"
I am afraid his recollections
of me will always be too intimately
associated with the rod to be
pleasant. Our morning ride
from Shefa Omar to Nazareth
was perfectly delightful. across
a stretch of country as beautiful
as that through which we had
travelled the preceding afternoon
a succession of beautiful vallies

fertile plains the hill-sides
covered with a growth of dwarf
oak, hawthorne and other shrubs
and the ground Every-where
carpeted with flowers -
It was nearly noon when
we came in sight of Nazareth
looking down upon it from
the hill above. The way down
the hill-side we found very
steep and rocky, but our horses
picked their way carefully and
carried us safely down into the
town. We rode through the
narrow dirty dusty streets wondering
how far the Nazareth of to-day
resembles Nazareth as it was
1800 years ago. We were now
in the inheritance of Zebulon
having left that of Asher behind
us in our morning ride.
Beyond the town we stopped under
some olive trees for lunch and
to wait for our tents to come up
It was a hot dusty place
and made us wish that

we had waited under some
of the beautiful shady trees we
had passed Earlier in the morning.
A party of American tourists was
already encamped here as we
afterward learned consisting
of Mr De Forest from New York.
with his wife son daughter and
niece. The three younger
members of the party had gone
for an excursion to Mt Tabor
and an hour or two later we
saw them come into camp at
full speed. One of the young
ladies told us afterwards that
she was trying to get in ahead
of the dragoman but failed
although she had the best
horse. The dragomen are all
of course good horsemen and
often ride like the wind -
While sitting under the trees we
noticed a very peculiar looking
man coming towards us.
He wore dirty white trousers a
long loose white jacket and


a red cap. His hair and
eyebrows were quite white although
he was not old. one of his Eyes he
kept closed nearly all the time
and the other squinted alarmingly.
He walked up to Mr Le Merchant
shook hands and said "And how
are you? ." As he seemed to expect
the conversation to be "continued
Mr Le Merchant asked him
after a moments pause "And who are
you?" Drawing himself up
he said with Emphasis "[u]I[/u] am
the Guide of Nazareth. All the
gentleman know [u]me[/u] the guide
of Nazareth. I can show you
Joseph's work shop, The Synagogue
Marys Kitchen . I know [u]all of
Nazareth[/u]" As he seemed to have
the monopoly of showing the
sights of Nazareth, we told him
we would go with him in
the afternoon and see what
he could show us. In the
meantime our tents had come
and the men were busy in
putting them up -

We were near the Greek church
and while we waited a funeral
procession passed near us and
went on into the church.
The bier a very rude one
was carried on the shoulders
of several men a Greek priest
was in attendance and a
small company of mourners
followed. The men soon
came with the welcome announcement
that our tents were ready and
we were glad to find in them
a shelter from the mid-day
sun. After resting a little
while we started out under the
direction of the "Guide of Nazareth
to see something of the town .
Just at the foot of the incline
on which our tents were pitched
is "Mary's well"- and close by a
little Greek church. some claim
that this is where the angel
Gabriel appeared to Mary.
Passing by this spot we went
on into the town and were

taken first to the synagogue
where Christ "Entered. into
the synagogue and taught."
A part of the building looks very
ancient but I suppose there
is no probability that it dates
back so far and no certainly
that it is even on the same site.
Next we were shown "The Chapel
of the Annunciation-" and here
was pointed out to us the stone
window through which Gabriel
entered the place where mary
stood +c +c. Then climbing
up a few stone steps we were
ushered into what by the feeble
light of the wax tapers we carried
we could see was a little
cave in the rock "Marys Kitchen."
and certainly a more dismal
place for a Kitchen could
not be imagined. The
next place Joseph's work-shop
is also now occupied by a
chapel lighted candles burning
the walls adorned with images
and pictures ---

Little Hermon with the towns
of Nain and Endor near its
base and beyond the Jordan
the mountains of Gilead.
The "Guide of Nazareth" who
had insisted upon accompanying
us pointed out to us what is
now called the "Mt of Precipitation."
We lingered until the twilight
shadows reminded us of the
steep hill-side down which we
must traverse to our tents.
On our way we passed a company
of school-girls gathering flowers
with their teacher a pleasant
looking woman who spoke English
very well and kindly showed
us the nearest way down .
The path seemed at times as
though it would lead us [--directly--]
down on the roofs of the house
which looked as though they
were directly below us being
built on the hill-side which
is very steep. We followed
the path and found our

way down however without
difficulty reaching the tents
just at dark. In the eve
Henry called on the American
party. Mr De Forest had called
at our tent while we were out.
Mr Atterbury came in to talk
over a proposed alteration in
our course of travel.
"Abraham" gave us warning
that he was not willing to
travel in company with Joseph
any longer in consequence
of some unpleasantness that
had occurred between them
during the day --
Friday
March 31st
Left Nazareth with some difficulty
this morning on account of
the ill feeling between our
dragomen. Abraham was
determined to take us by another
road to Tiberias while we who
had no share in their quarrel

all wished to go the same
way. He finally yielded the
point but with a very bad
grace and it was some hours
before he recovered his usual
good humor. We found the
road rather rocky leading
us through a succession of beautiful
vallies where dwarf-oak and
hawthorne abounded.
In less than two hours we reached
the base of Mt Tabor and
began the ascent. The road
was steep and winding but
our horses carried us up bravely
and in about three quarters
of an hour we were at the
summit 1400 feet above the level
of the plain. The sky was
overcast and some rain-drops
fell but we nevertheless had a
very good view from the
mountain top. WE climbed
over extensive ruins and an
old monk pointed out to us
the spot that tradition marks

as the scene of the transfiguration
also in the distance the Mt of
Beatitudes the "Hill of [illegible]" where
the last battle of the Crusaders
was fought July 5th 1187.
Before us we looked southward
over the plain of Esdraelon
to the mountains of Little Hermon
and Gilboa Eastward lay the
valley of the Jordan and the
mountains of Gilead. We
just had a glimpse of Mt Hermon
through the clouds which partially
enveloped the summit and here
we saw again the Sea of Galilee.
still in the distance. We spent
about an hour on the Mt Tabor and
then began the descent reaching
the foot of the mountain a little
before noon. We stopped for lunch
in a lovely valley under the
shade of some dwarf-oaks.
The ground all about us was
covered with wild flowers daisies
anemones adonis lilies pink and
white cyclamens and many
others. A party of German

travellers that we had met
in the morning and left
upon Mt Tabor passed us while
we were resting here. In the
afternoon we travelled for a
short distance on the great
caravan road between Damascus
and Egypt, the road over which
caravans have travelled for so
many hundreds of years on
their way to and from Egypt
as Abraham told us the same
road along which the Ishmaelites
carried Joseph when he was
sold in Egyptian bondage.
We passed the "Merchant's
Caravansary" some forts now in
ruins built for the protection of
travelling caravans nearly 300
years ago. Near here was a
market where we saw great
numbers of horses, mules and
donkeys. Leaving the
caravan road we rode
during the rest of the afternoon
across plains of no special interest.

The clouds still hung over
us and occasionally some drops
of rain fell but not Enough
to make us need our water-proofs.
We passed several Encampments
of Bedouins their black tents
looking quite primitive. On
our way we had often met
them with their trains of camels
or tending their flocks and
these "sons of the desert" are
indeed wild looking specimens
of humanity. It was five-o-clock
when we reached the summit
of the last hill and looked
down upon the Sea of Galilee
spread out before us Encircled
with mountains which seemed
to shut it in from the world
outside. The surface of the
lake as we first saw it was smooth
as a mirror and the whole
view as we paused on the
brow of the hill and looked
down upon it was beautiful
beyond description and I

could not help thinking
that the Saviour could not
have chosen a lovelier place
for the scene of his ministry
on Earth . Afterwards down
beside the sea on the hot
sandy beach when "the sun
had risen with a burning heat"
it was Easy to think how
worn and weary He must
often have felt when the
people thronged him but that
first evening the scene seemed
perfectly beautiful and first
impressions are deepest and will
linger longest. Just below
us on the shore of the sea
was the little town of Tiberias
all that is left of the ancient
city and now the only town
that remains of all that were
found on the shores of Lake
Galilee Eighteen hundred years
ago. Tiberias once a magnificent
city the home of Herod is now
only a dirty miserable little town

the population is largely
Jewish and I was told that
the Jews there now expect the
Messia when he comes will
appear in Tiberias and set
up his throne in Safed a city
a day's journey North West from
Tiberias . The road led us
down the steep hillside and
past Tiberias to our camping
ground a little south of the
city and close to the sea-shore.
Abraham went into the
town to purchase provisions but
returned saying that as it was
Friday Eve the Jewish day
of preparation he found the
shops all closed.
In the evening the wind
rose and in a very short time
the waves began to roll in and
break upon the beach with
considerable force and we went
to sleep hoping that the wind would
not rise sufficiently to blow down our
tents a casualty which the men had
Endeavored to guard against by tightening
the tent ropes and strengthening the stakes.

Saturday
April 1st-
This morning soon after breakfast
we mounted our horses to ride to
the site of Capernaum Bethsaida
and Chorazin. We rode through
the narrow duty streets of Tiberias
which even among Oriental
cities is noted for its want of
cleanliness. Being Saturday
it was the Jewish Sabbath and
the shops were closed and from
several synagogues that we
passed we heard the voices of
the worshippers within It
seemed almost as though we were
desecrating the day as we passed
the closed shops and open
synagogues and remember
that it must have been the
seventh day of the week that
the Saviour observes as the
Sabbath when He was living
here by the shores of Galilee.
From Tiberias we could see
at the head of the lake
the place marked as the

site of Capernaum but it
required a ride of several hours
along the shore to reach it.
The road much of the way
lay along the sandy beach
sometimes winding up over
the hill-sides. The country
looked wild and uncultivated
thickets of oleander and other
shrubs grew all along the way.
An hour's ride brought us to
Magdala once the home of Mary
Magdalena now the most forlorn
looking collection of miserable
little mud huts that could be
imagined Wretched dirty
little children run out and
holding up their hands
screamed baksheesh but we
told them "bukra" Arabic for
tomorrow which is understood
as declaiming the privilege of
giving. Near the head of
the lake we crossed the "Land
of Genessaret" and soon came
to the place which most

authorities agree in considering
as the site where Capernaum
once stood. Nothing remains
to mark it now save a few
stones and all about is only
a wilderness with hardly any
signs of ^life or civilization. A little
beyond this we passed a fountain
of fresh clear water and then
the road led up the hillside
and on through a beautiful
stretch of country partially
cultivated to Bethsaida or the
place where Bethsaida once
was before the fearful woe
was pronounced upon her
and the sister cities whose
complete and literal fulfillment
we see in the utter desolation
which to-day reigns over the
places that once knew them.
Beyond Bethsaida a short
ride brought us to Chorazin
nothing remains here but
a few stones on some of which

may still be seen traces of
carving . But for the words
of prophecy predicting the
utter overthrow of these cities
it would seem strange that
the intervening years could
have destroyed so utterly
Every trace of their existence.
Capernaum for a time
the home of the Savior where
many of his mighty works
were done exalted to heaven
in point of privileges Bethsaida
the home of James and John
and Philip Chorazin have
all been swept away, but
the shores of Lake Galilee
remain the same to-day
as when Eighteen hundred
years ago Jesus walked
beside the sea and chose
his disciples from the fishermen
on its shores. There was
little on the site of Chorazin
to recall anything save the

Saviour's words "Woe unto thee
Chorazin" which sealed the
fate of the sinful city so
many hundred years ago.
Turning back we retraced
our way and passing Bethsaid
stopped for lunch under the
shade of a tree near the site
of Capernaum. While sitting
here two or three Arabs came
and sat down under the
same tree and one of them
taking out his ink-horn and
paper commenced covering
it with Arabic characters.
Our afternoon ride was
rather warm , We reached
camp about three-o-clock
found the tents of an English
party that had just arrived
pitched near ours. Towards
evening the wind rose
again and made us
feel a little anxious about
our tent which seemed

too frail a tabernacle
to stand against much of a
storm. The night was dark
and rainy and towards morning
our fears were realized
An anxious creaking awakened
us a little after three-o-clock
and in a moment the pole
in the center of the tent snappen
in two, letting the top of the
tent fall in.
The men came in
and soon propped it up
so that it would answer
until day light would
enable them to repair it.

[Note: blank page]


The Sabbath
April 2nd-
As soon as it was light this
morning Abraham went into
the town and called two Jewish
carpenters who came at once with
their tools and in an hour or two
repaired the broken pole, and
our tent was able to hold up its
head again, it had looked
rather forlorn in its drooping
condition. In the meantime
the pole of one of the tents of
the English party encamped
near by had broken in a similar
manner and as soon as the
carpenters had finished repairing
ours their dragomen came for them
to go and do the same service
for them . The saying that
"Misery loves Company-" is doubtless
Equally true in every land
certainly Abraham seemed to
rejoice greatly when he found
the misfortune was not peculiar

to himself and came with
Evident delight to point out to
us the fallen tent saying
"Not yourself alone tent come
down." The morning sunshine
scattered the clouds of the previous
night and the day proved to
be a very warm one. The
Early part of the day was clear
and the view of the Lake and
the surrounding mountains very
beautiful. We could see Mt
Hermon very distinctly, this is
thought by many to have been
the Mt of Transfiguration instead
of Mt Tabor. In the afternoon
it became very hazy and
gradually the distant mountains
faded from our view and
soon we could not even see
those on the opposite shore of the
lake. In the evening just
as the sun was going down
behind the hills of [?Naphtah?]
we went down and sat for
some time by the sea-shore with
Mr Atterbury and Mr Le-Merchant.

The water of the lake is
beautifully clear and the beach
is covered with pebbles and
little shells. While sitting
here a boat passed us on the
lake and in its occupants we
recognized Mr De Forest and
his family and learned afterward
that they had come over from
Nazareth and were encamped
on the North side of the Tiberias.
We returned to our tents for dinner
and then went again down to
the sea-shore, and sitting on some
rocks close to the water's Edge sang
several hymns. It was a beautiful
moonlight Evening, the waters of
the Lake were perfectly calm and
peaceful- and as we remembered all
the sacred associations of the place
we felt thankful that it had
been our privilege to spend
our Sabbath on the shores
of the Sea of Galilee -

Monday
April 3d.
Left our camping ground
by the sea-shore this morning
about seven-o-clock. Our
guides led us up the hill-side
by a different path not nearly
so steep as that down which
we came [--Sab--] Friday evening.
On our right we left the
Hill of Hattin - where tradition
says Christ preached the
sermon on the Mount and
where nearly eight hundred
years ago the Army of the Crusaders
suffered its final defeat -
Near the Hill of Hattin a
grassy slope was pointed out to
us as the place that witnessed
the miracle of the loaves and
fishes - As we went up the
hillside we turned back occasionally
for parting glances of the places
hallowed by so many sacred
associations but the morning
was very hazy, and we could

not see far and soon the
intervening hills hid from
us Lake Galilee and its
surroundings. We retraced
our way across the plains
to Mt Tabor which we reached
about noon and stopped for
our mid-day rest at its base
under the shade of a karoub
tree- with high hedges of prickly
pear growing all about.
The karoub tree produces a
kind of bean growing in pods
and these pods are the "husks"
with which the prodigal son
longed to satisfy his hunger.
I was told that some
think the locusts of which St John
ate were really these husks.
While we waited here our train
of mules overtook us and went
on their way across the plain --
From where ^we sat we could see the
plain of Esdraelon stretching
far away to the south

beautiful as ever in the
bright warm sunshine varied
by the shadows of the drifting
clouds and far across it
we could trace the winding
path which we were to
follow to our camping ground
at Shinem. We rested here
nearly two hours then remounting
rode across the plain southward
along the base of Little Hermon
past the villages of Endor and
Nain to the little town of Shinem
which we reached a little
after five-o-clock and found
our tents up but not quite
ready for us. Crowds of dirty
children and rough looking
Bedouins gathered around us
and Abraham told us that
he felt very much afraid of
thieves here. Our way to-day
had been through the
inheritance of Zebulon and
Naphtah the lands which

Eighteen hundred years ago
witnessed the fulfillment of
Esaias' prophecy. To-night
our thoughts went still farther
back to the time when the
prophet Elisha used to come
here and find in the home
of the Shimamite woman a
warm welcome and generous
hospitality. And then we
looked far across the plain
to Mt Carmel over the long
weary way that the mourning
mother went when the
shadow of death had darkened
her home to carry the sad
tidings to the man of God.
In another anchor we could
see not far distant the site
of ancient Jezrul and we
were Encamped on the plain
of Esdraelon "valley of Jezruel"-
now looking so calm and
peaceful in the soft sunset
light but which in past ages has
so often been the battlefield of
conflicting armies -

Tuesday -
April 4th-
WE were on our way Early
this morning and our guides
first led us a little off from
the direct road across an
immense field of wheat to
the "Fountain of Harod" or Jezrul
where long ago Gideon brought
his men to choose out from
them the three hundred who
in the night of "The sword
of the Lord and of Gideon"
were to overpower and scatter
the host of the Midianites Encamped
against them in the valley of
Jezrul. The water of the
fountain is beautifully clear
spreading out into a large
basin partially sheltered by
the overhanging rock- and
behind it rise the mountains
heights of Gilboa .WE had been
passing over the very ground
where Saul fought his last
battle with the Philastines -

Disheartened and discouraged
he had gone the night before
to consult the witch of Endor
and learned through her the
sad fate in store for him -
As I looked across the plain and
inquired it as it was on
that day covered with the
hosts of the Philistines I thought
how hope must have died
within the hearts of the Israelites
as they turned to flee from
their enemies up the steep
rocky slopes of Gilboa -
A little farther on we
reached the site of ancient
Jezrul and riding up the
hill on which it stood stopped
for a few moments on the
summit to compare its present
with its past. Only a few
miserable little building's
now occupy the place of
this ancient city of the Kings-
The city of Ahab "who did

Evil in the sight of the
Lord more than all the
Kings which were before him".
where Jezebel lived her wicked
life and died her miserable death
where Naboth was sacrificed
to Ahab's coretousness - and
where the fearful execution
of retributive justice was visited
upon Ahab's seventy sons -
In the perfect quiet that
now reigns over these hills and
plains it seemed hard to
realize that they had ever
been the silent witnesses of
such scenes. We lingered
to admire the beautiful view
before us, at our feet the "valley
of Jezrul" the plain of Esdraelon
stretching westward to Mt Carmel
and the Mediterranean southward
to Jenin the ancient Engannim
To the Northwest we looked
off upon the hills of Galilee
and southward those of
Samaria while to the east

beyond the valley of
the jordan rose the mountains
of Gilead. From Jezrul
our way led us through a
beautiful tract of country to
Jenin - a town of some two or
three thousand inhabitants
apparently well built and
prosperous as compared with
the towns we had passed.
It is the Egannim of old
and is beautifully situated at
the southern extremity of the
plain of Esdraelon. A military
force is kept here for the protection
of the country. These vast
plains are now only partially
cultivated and there are
very few inhabitants living in
the scattered villages. I was
told that the whole population
of Syria does not exceed one
million and that not more
than one fourth of the
land is under cultivation -
and shepherds take their

flocks where they will
only keeping them off from
the tracts of cultivated land
which are not Enclosed in
any way. It is Easy to
understand how the Midianites
used to come up with their
flocks and herds and "posess
the land". The entrance to
the town was between long lines
of hedges of prickly pear and
here I tasted first its fruit the
Indian fig to my taste
insipid but not unpleasant.
In riding through the town
Hassan, our lunch boy had
the misfortune to break the
Earthen water jar which was
one of the "articles too numerous
to mention" which composed
the load which his horse
carried and on the summit
of which he rode with his
feet sticking nearly straight out
on Either side. Abraham
attributed the accident Entirely
to his desire to put on style
and ride fast "like a gentleman"

through the streets of the city
and reprimanded him soundly
for so far forgetting his proper
station in life. How any one
encumbered with such an
amount of miscellaneous luggage
should ever think of aspiring
to "ride like a gentleman" -
was a marvel to me but I was
often astonished to see Hassan
dashing along the path at
full speed with only a piece
of rope to guide his horse
his arms, feet, saddle-bags, musket
water-jar +c all flying wildly
in the air, and still more
astonished to see that his horse
did not lose everything off his
back but presently come to a
halt, horse, boy, and luggage
all together and all in
good order- Just beyond
the town we stopped for
lunch in a grove of olive
trees beneath which a flourishing
crop of lentiles was growing-

Another party of travellers
were taking their noonday
rest under the shade of some
trees near by. We waited here
more than two hours so as to
give the mule train which
passed us in the mean-time
time enough to reach the
camping ground in advance
of us. Our afternoonr ride
of three and a half hours was
delightful the path leading
us through winding vallies
which opened out into beautiful
fertile partially cultivated plains
the hill-sides covered with groves
of olive trees. We were travelling
through the inheritance of
Issacher and "saw the land
that it was pleasant-"
On our right we passed Dothan
to which place Joseph was
directed when searching for
his brethren and for a time
the home of the prophet
Elisha . Later in the
afternoon crossed a long

plain of low ground called
the "Drowning Valley"- and
near the hill which is crowned
by the Fortress of Samur a place
which has been a stronghold
in times past but is now partially
in ruins. It was nearly
evening when we reached
our tents pitched in a low
marshy place near Jebe
and close by a fine fountain.
Wednesday
April 5th -
We left our camping ground
about the usual time this
morning and followed the
path leading from the valley
up the hillside past Jeba
or Gibeah . The road we
found grew more steep and
rocky- sometimes along the
vallies and sometimes leading
up over the hills from whose
summits we enjoyed beautiful
views of the surrounding
country- Many of the hillsides

are terraced and cultivated
but there are few trees and
the general aspect of the
country rather barren.
We passed several villages
and at half past nine reached
the first place of special
interest the ancient Samaria
for a time the capital of Ahab
It was here that he built for
Jezebel a temple to Baal.
We visited here the ruins of
the church of John the Baptist
where it is said he was buried
by his mourning disciples --
The church was a large
building 153 feet long and
75 wide and probably dates
back to the time of the
Crusaders. In Samaria the
apostle Philip preached for a
time and here he founded
a church. We afterwards
visited a place where two lines
of large columns still remain
standing supposed once to
have formed a part of a
triumphal arch dating from

the time when "Herod the
Great" rebuilt Samaria.
It is difficult to realize what
Samaria once was looking
upon it now that "it has
become desolate".
From Samaria we had a
smooth and comparatively
level road, beautiful landscapes
at Every turn. Our way lay
through the inheritance of
Manasseh and Ephraim.
The country seemed more
thoroughly cultivated we
passed many groves of olives
figs and pomegranites and
the hillsides were terraced.
The people we meet all
through the country however
poorly dressed go armed
with guns knives or clubs
During the forenoon we came
again in sight of the telegraph
line from Beirut to Jerusalem
which we had not seen for
several days. We reached

Nablous the ancient Shechem
about noon . Our tents
had not yet come up and
we looked about for a cool
shady place where we might
sit down to wait for them .
There seemed to be no good
shade trees near and we
finally climbed over a stone
wall and sat down on the
ploughed ground under an
olive tree. After an hour or so
our tents were ready and we
were glad to find in them
a better shelter from the heat
of the sun. Our camping
ground was just outside the
city and we could not help
thinking that our tents
might be in and could
not be far from the very place
where long years ago Abraham
and Jacob pitched their tents
"over against Shechem"- We
were just at the base of Mt
Gerizim and after resting

for an hour or two longer
remounted our horses to ride
up the mountain that we
might Enjoy the view from
its summit which is said
to be very fine indeed -
The road up the mountain
side overlooks the city of
Shechem which is beautifully
located at the base and
extending up the side of
Gerizim and rather picturesque
in appearance as we looked
down upon it. We found
the path very steep indeed
and it seemed as though
the sharp pointed rocks
which covered the mountain
every-where would surely
cut and bruise our horses'
feet. As we climbed upward
dark clouds began to gather
over-head making us fear

that they would hide
from us the view we wished
so much to obtain- and
long before we reached the
summit the rain drops
began to fall. Near the
top we found a large party
of Samaritans encamped
who had come up to keep
the passover feast on Mt Gerizim -
the Saturday following -
I counted thirty tents Many
of their occupants came out
to look at us and one dignified
looking old man who could
speak a little English made
an attempt to carry on a
conversation with Mr LE Merchant
It seemed strange to hear
his "Yea Verily" in answer to
the commonplace remark that
we feared there would be
rain. They seemed hospitably
inclined and urged us very
much to dismount and come

into their tents but we did
not accept their invitation.
From here a short but very
steep climb brought us to the
top of the mountain. It is
covered with Extensive ruins
the walls in some places nine
feet thick apparently the
foundation of an extensive
building but what they
really are does not seem
to be very well known.
some think that some time
in the past there must
have been a building here
corresponding to the temple
of Jerusalem - as Mt Gerizim
is the holy mount of the
Samaritans - A little
south of the ruins is a
large smooth rock of irregular
shape some forty-five feet in
diameter and this is
considered by the Samaritans

a very sacred spot their
altar of burnt offering -
Here they say is where
Abraham came to sacrifice
his son Isaac and also
claim that when the
children of Israel entered
the promised land it was
here the ark was placed
and the tabernacle set up
and that here the twelve
stones from the bed of the
Jordan were brought.
It is Mt Gerizim that has
been through so many
centuries the rival of Jerusalem
of which the Samaritan
woman said to Christ
our fathers worshipped in
this mountain but ye say
that in Jerusalem is the
place where men ought to
worship. Just across a
narrow valley is Mt Ebal

the exact counterpart
of Gerizim - and we looked
down the mountain side and
thought of the time so long ago
when the children of Israel
were gathered there to listen
to the reading of the law
six of the tribes standing over
against Mt Gerizim and
six tribes over against Mt Ebal
and the many and sad
changes that the centuries
which had come and gone
between that time and this
have brought to the proud
Jewish nation - Near the
foot of the mountain our
guide pointed out to us the
tomb of Joseph and Jacob's
well. The location of these
places is considered to be well
authenticated which cannot
be said of much that is told
to travellers by the guides -
We regretted much that
we missed the fine view from

Gerizim which we should
have had if we had been
favored with a clear sky -
The mountain itself looks
dreary and desolate beyond
description. Unlike other mountains
it does not seem to be composed
of rock but rather covered
with them. I could not
help think that it looked
as though it had been made
and then a deluge of rocks
and stones poured down upon
it. Our guide was determined
to take us back to our tents by
another road and we had
intended to go down the mountain
on the other side and visit
Jacob's well but as the rain was
falling we concluded to deger
our visit there unti the next
morning and take the nearest
way down. Remembering
that "a merciful man is merciful
to his beast"- we dismounted and
led our horses down the rocky

path carefully picking
our way among the sharp
pointed stones. When we
came back we found soem
excitements in the camp
and soon learned that the
"Shechemites" had falled
upon our dragomen and
ill-treated them. Abraham
had been wounded in the
head by a stone thrown at
him - and Joseph had
gone down into the city to the
court of justice where the
matter was being investigated.
The trouble originated in
some difficulty between a
muleteer of a party of American
tourists encamped near by
and one of the Shechemites
with whom he had had
some dealings A quarrel
of words ended in blows
and the poor fellow run to
our men for assistance which

accounted for their becoming
involved. A large crowd
gathered around and quite
a disturbance ensued which
was quieted by the appearance
of some Turkish soldiers-
The principal offenders
were arrested and taken
down into the city-
Joseph told us afterwards
with great gusto that they
were going to arrest him
but he entered such a
pitiful complaint of the
ill treatment that he had
suffered that he made
them feel that it would
be adding insult to injury
to arrest him and they
asked him to go with them
instead as a witness which
he was more willing to do.
He said he was not really
hurt at all but he slipped

his purse out of his pocket
and managed to tread
on his tobacco box and
break it and pulled his
cap awry and then declared
that all his money had
been taken from him
his tobacco box ruined and
that several stones had
hit his head - for he
asked "Is it not better so
than to go to prison for a
few days?-" It was very Evident
which he thought the better
plan and he seemed to Enjoy
Exceedingly the thought of
his shrewdness in Evading
the grasp of the law.
The case was investigated
in the afternoon and in
the evening a Turkish
Official came with a
native missionary living in
Shechem who speaks English

to apologize for the rudeness
of his people. The party
who muleteer was the
principal actor and sufferer
consisted of a young man
from America and his two
sisters whom we had met
on board the steamer from
Port Said to Jaffa some
three weeks previous.
Late in the evening Mr
LE Merchant came in to say
good-bye, As he had previously
visited Jerusalem his plan
was to go to direct form Nablous
to Jaffa thus making it
only one day's journey.
Thursday -
April 5th-
We rose this morning to find
that the clouds of yesterday
were still hanging over us
giving promised of a rain day.

Two other parties were
encamped near us and
a little farther up the
mountain on a green
grassy slope under beautiful
trees a third from whose
tents floated the English
flag. One party left the
camping ground before
us but we were on our way
at seven and noticed
as we passed that our
American friends were
just beginning to take down
their tents. Mr Le Merchant
was already far on his way
to Jaffa having started
nearly three hours before.
We rode through the
streets of the strange old
city so old that its history
goes back four thousand

years to the time when
"Abraham came into the
land of Canaan into the
place of Sichem".
The streets are narrow
and the houses built of
stone. so small and the
walls so thick that they
seem almost as though
hewn out of the solid
rock. "Shechem in
Mt Ephraim" was one of the
cities of refuge mentioned by
Joshua. Just outside
the city we passed a military
station and a large company
of soldiers were out on a green
grassy bank near by busily
engaged in washing their
clothes. Their military dress
is I think quite picturesque
the Turkish trousers and
jacket with cap and sash.

Most of them wore jacket
and trousers of dark blue
cloth with scarlet trimmings
and scarlet caps. A few
were dressed in white which
with scarlet sashes and
caps looked very pretty.
They seemed to be having
a happy time notwithstanding
the cloudy sky did not
promise well for getting
their clothes dry -
A little farther on we
passed through a miserable
little village all that
remains of Sychar.
and just beyond is
Joseph's tomb, a little area
enclosed by a high wall
and partially covered
with a dome. There is
little or no doubt that this

is really the spot where
the children of Israel
buried Joseph "in Shechem"
and here he has been quietly
resting during so many centuries
undisturbed by the changes
which the passing years
have brought to his land
and people. Only a
short distance from the
tomb of Joseph is Jacob's
well in "the parcel of
ground that Jacob gave
to his son Joseph"-
We found the well with
some difficulty for the
stones surrounding it have
fallen out of place and
it is partially covered over
I could hardly realized
that the Saviour once
sat here "wearied with his

journey" and that He
was then travelling doubtless
over the same road which
we are now on His way from
Judea to Galilee -
The well is at the base
of Mt Gerizim the mountain
in which the Samaritan
woman told him their
Fathers had worshipped.
Near here it is supposed
from the natural features
of the place Joshua
must have stood when
he read the law in the
hearing of all the congregation
of Israel six tribes standing
over against Mt Gerizim
and six tribes over against
Mt Ebal. Leaving Shechem
and the surroundings
which give it so much interest

we went on our way
the road leading us
southward through the
inheritance of Ephraim -
The rain clouds above us
had been growing darker
and darker and soon
falling drops gave us warning
of a coming shower-
We sought shelter [--f--] under
the branches of an olive tree
but after waiting a few
moments concluded as it
furnished but very poor
protection that it would
be better for us to be making
progress - as it was not yet
raining very hard-
A few miles farther on we
passed near the site of
Shiloh the location of
which is so clearly defined
in the Bible. "A place which
is on the North side of Bethel

on the East side of the
highway that goeth up
from Bethel to Shechem
and on the south of Lebonah-"
a place so deeply interesting
on account of its past history.
It was in Shiloh that the
children of Israel set up
the tabernacle and where
the tribes gathered to receive
from Joshua their portions
of the promised land.
For forty years it was
the home of Eli and for a
time of Samuel and it was
in Shiloh that the children
of Israel assembled from
year to year to keep a
feast of the Lord.
We did not visit it as
it half an hour's ride
from the direct road but

those who have record
that "all remains
of Shiloh to-day is the
ground on which it formerly
stood and a handful of
scattered ruins-"
Soon after passing the
little town of [illegible] a
harder shower compelled
us again to seek shelter
under some olive trees
and here we waited to
take lunch and let the
mule train pass us.
We had intended in the
morning to spend the
night at Bethel but the
unfavorable state of the
weather made us decide
that it would be best to
find a camping ground
nearer. For nearly two

hours we waited under
the trees to insure the tents
being ready for us then
remounting rode an
hour and a half farther
to the place where we
found our tents. They
were pitched in a beautiful
place a wild ravine with
high rocky hills on Either
side - the clouds resting
on their summits and the
mists creeping down their
sides. Everything was
damp and cold and
the wind blew in fitful
gusts as if determined to
take advantage of some
unexpected moment and
blow down our tents.
But the cold and rain
could not entirely prevent

us from enjoying the
natural beauties of our
surroundings and I could
not help regretting that
we could not see them
under more favorable
circumstances. Mr Atterbury
came over in the evening and
we all agreed that we
would start as Early the
next morning as possible.
Abraham told us he thought
that if our tents blew down
in the night it would be
our best plan to mount
our horses at once and
start for Jerusalem and
so save them the trouble
of putting them up again.
Fortunately however such
was not our fate, towards
evening the rain ceased and
before we went to bed the
stairs were shining brightly.

Friday
April 6th -
After a chilly night we rose
this morning to find Every
thing rather moist and
the sky looking dark and
threatening We gathered
our things together and
put them up with some
regrets to think that it
was the last time and
mounting our horses were
on the way by half past
six. Mr Atterbury and
Joseph had already started
and as we afterwards learned
reached Jerusalem by
ten-o-clock. The clouds
soon began to break away
and we enjoyed occasional
gleams of sunshine -
The country through which

we were travelling seemed
more barren and there
were fewer traces of cultivation
than farther North. We
had come into the inheritance
of Benjamin and a ride
of two and half hours
brought us to Bethel -
As we rode through the
streets of the wretched little
town that now bears the
name and occupies the
site of ancient Bethel
we recalled the many
scenes in its past which
make it still a place
of so much interest and
then looking at its present
remembered the prophecy
of Amos more than two
thousand years ago -
"Bethel shall come to nought"

From Bethel we caught
a glimpse of Jerusalem
twelve miles distant and
a little farther on saw
it very distinctly through
an opening in the hills.
Not far from Bethel
the location of Ai was
pointed out but hidden
from us by a range
of mountains the same
to which long long ago
Abraham came when
he "removed from thence
into a mountain on the
East of Bethel and pitched
his tent having Bethel on
the west and Hai on the
East and then he builded
an altar unto the Lord."

Farther on we passed
"Gibeah of Saul" and
on a hillside at some
distance Ramah was pointed
out to us. As we drew near
Jerusalem we overtook crowds
of pilgrims on their way
to the Holy City to spend
Easter week within its limits-
They formed a motley
company having gathered
to this centre from various
lands some of them had
been on their way for
more than a month.
A few of them were mounted
on donkeys but by far the
larger portion both men
and women were walking
poor people who were many
of them spending then
little all in this pilgrimage

to the Holy City hoping
thus to secure salvation.
I was told that many
poor people will save in
Every way for years and
years to get enough money
to enable them to come
at last to Jerusalem
and make a pilgrimage
to all the sacred places
vainly thinking thus to
atone for the sins of a
lifetime. During the
few days that we
spent in Jerusalem
we were often sad
witnesers of their ignorant
superstition and deluded
folly. It was after
twelve when we reached
Jerusalem. I was not

disappointed in the first
view of the city. It is
beautifully situated built
on mountains and
surrounded
by mountains
and as we saw it in the
distance a beautiful city.
Its location and appearance
in in many respects quite
unlike any other city
that I have ever seen.
A nearer view reveals the
poverty and wretchedness
which makes the present
such a sad contract
of the past but here as
elsewhere "Distance lends
enchantment--" We
approached the city
from the North and
passing near the Damascus
Gate our guide led us

around to the west
side and we entered
through the Jaffa Gate-
and made our way
through the narrow dirty
streets crowded with pilgrims
to the German Hospice
where we hoped to remain
while in Jerusalem.
I had taken a severe
cold the preceding night
and was very tired and
glad to rest in the
comfortable room which
they furnished us -
After resting an hour or two
we secured a guide to conduct
us to the Wailing place of the
Jews it being Friday afternoon
the time when they meet to
mourn over the desolation
of Jerusalem. They meet in

an open space just outside
a wall the lower stones of which
are supposed once to have formed
a part of ancient Jerusalem.
It is the nearest point to which
they are allowed by the Moslem
Rulers to approach to the site
of their ancient Temple now
occupied by the Mosque of Omar
For more than seven hundred
years the Jews have thus assembled
from time to time to mourn
for their past glory and weep
over their present desolation.
We found forty of fifty assembled
most of them standing close
beside the wall some seated
on the stone pavement, old
men with tears streaming
down their cheeks women
and children kissing the
stones over and over again.
some reading form books in
the Hebrew and others seeming
to join in [--the--] chorus. It was
a very touching sight for

whether the grief and sorrow
expressed were all as genuine
as it seemed or not there
was Enough in their appearance
their surroundings and the
thought of their present condition
to make the scene seem
inexpressibly sad. Many of
those we saw there had doubtless
come from a long distance
some we were told were Polish
Jews There are now in Jerusalem
some four thousand Jews
living in poverty and wretchedness
I did not visit the Jewish
quarter but it is said to be
the most miserable part of the
city is located in the southern
part between Mt Zion and
Mount Moriah. They have
fourteen synagogues which I
was informed are made with
the floors sunk below the
level of the ground to indicate
the present low condition of

the Jewish nation. It was
very sad indeed to see the
Jews in the position of strangers
and aliens in their own
city which in spite of her
low Estate they still love so
passionately. While in
Jerusalem I was continually
reminded of the Saviour's
words. "O! Jerusalem Jerusalem
how often would I have gathered
thy children together even as
a hen gathereth her chickens
under her wings and [u]ye
would not[/u]." words as sadly true
of the Jews as a nation to-day
as when more than Eighteen
hundred years ago they
rejected the offer of protecting
love.

很友好地。他们唱着甜蜜的再见和再见
拿撒勒人耶稣。只有一件盔甲
承载者” - 然后是小

早早起身,坐在
窗口长时间注视
街上经过的人
以下。景色很美
就在前面一个小湖和
在彼岸的高山上
覆盖着树木和其中之一
他们被一座堡垒加冕——
我饶有兴趣地看着
不同的人经过
穿着他们的东方服饰。每一个
事情让我想起了
我读过的生活描述
在印度 。人民是
和中国人很不一样
特别是在他们的直立马车中
和弹性台阶如此不同
弯腰的身影和洗牌
我们习惯看到的大门
在中国 。布法罗推车
是由公牛画的
双方都破烂不堪
可以想象的方式——一种
不同于任何我的开放式马车

四个人可以靠背坐着
对彼此被使用
这里的外国人。的礼服

沿着几条街道
小镇,然后回到

周四
3月9日
今天早上来了
甲板发现我们是
经过索科特拉岛。
被告知居民
是食人族。傍晚时分
通过“埃尔多拉多”罚款
大蒸笼——
星期五
3月10日——
今天下午讲穷
经过亚丁大约二十
英里远据说是一个
最荒凉的
寻找的地方。 “苏丹”
晚上经过我们
她去印度的路——
周六
3月11日——
凌晨三点
船长来告诉我们
虽然我们正在路过
巴布-埃尔-曼德。 “大门
泪水”我们穿好衣服,

31
就在甲板上
可能的-海峡是
只有两英里半
广阔的土地
侧高而崎岖
我们非常沉闷和贫瘠
白天被告知,但
正如我们看到的那样美丽
柔和的月光。刚进
我们遇到的最狭窄的地方
一个法国蒸笼
突然改变了她
当然,越过我们的弓
从而冒着风险
碰撞并使我们的
官员们非常着急
片刻——我们看到了一个
建在沙滩上的大房子
靠近海边和
被告知这是
飞行员的住所
红海。白天
我们大部分时间
在一个岛屿的视线中
我们被告知其中一个人

32
谁从沉船中逃脱
十年或十二年前
从那以后一直生活——
并且已经成长为相当
野人不会有
与任何人交流。
我们白天经过
十个蒸笼。
安息日
3月12日——
在红海一个愉快的
一天一帆风顺——
亨利从
文本,“这就是信心
我们在祂里面拥有如果
我们根据要求提出任何要求
他听从我们的旨意”——
我们今天遇到了两艘汽船——
前夜,伯格曼夫人
病得很重,格雷厄姆夫人
还 -
周一
3月13日——
凉爽宜人,清新的微风
从北方吹来,延缓
我们,所以我们不是 220
每天只跑 180 英里。

33
周二 -
3月14日
缓缓扬帆起航
红海在
写信 -
周三
3月15日
又是愉快的一天——仍然
看不见陆地。这
日落非常美丽。
周四
3月16日
一大早被叫
去看西奈山但发现
当我登上甲板时
它还在远处。
我们整天都在航行
在陆地的视线中。一个非常
宽阔的沙滩伸展
从海里回来,和
上升到沙山
几千英尺高
没有灌木或树木

34
救赎荒凉
可怕的沙子浪费。
傍晚西奈山
和 Mt Horeb 被指出
对我们来说日落是一个
非常出色的一个,我们
看着太阳下山
在山的后面
非洲——穿越红河
海,它最后的光芒挥之不去
在西奈山山顶和
邻近的山脉——
它非常漂亮,而且
我们非常喜欢柔软的
天空和云彩的着色。
星期五
3月17日
这是圣帕特里克节
乘客和官员
已经同意庆祝
它。我们度过了一个上午
制作徽章
先生们模仿
三叶草,但被告知

35
我们没有成功
出色地。清晨
我们经过了那个地方
被指出为地方
以色列人过河的地方
红海——从它的
自然特征很容易
相信它是真的
这个地方。两边
被山关起来
沙无单
青翠的痕迹——沉闷的
荒废的沙子
法老的军队追击他们
和大海准备好了
无法吞噬他们
向右或向左
“关在旷野——”
疲惫和旅行穿了一件
难怪
他们提出了绝望
哭。 “如果没有坟墓
你带来的埃及
我们出去死在旷野”-?

36
当我看着看似
无尽的浪费沙子 - 我
前所未有地意识到
以色列人受惩罚的严重程度
徘徊四十年
这样的旷野
荒凉一定是
对他们的可怕报应
缺乏信仰。
我们到达了苏伊士
早上停泊在那里
几个小时离开
下午一点苏伊士建成
在平坦的沙质平原上
背景为
沙山。
轮船停泊
有一段距离
没有乘客
上了岸。我们
在这里了解到其中之一
我们遇到的汽船

37
前几天有
在 Pt de Galle 被击毁
打在岩石上然后走
几乎是瞬间下降——
乘客和机组人员是
都屈服了。我们进入了
苏伊士运河约一
-点钟。快九十了
数英里长——还有一些
路段不宽
足以让汽船通过
所以最后进来的
必须停在制造的地方
更广泛的目的和
允许其他人通过。
这样我们就通过了
七。只有我们蒸熟
大约每小时五英里
除了一些地方
原来有湖泊
所以现在频道
更宽——有人告诉我
“Priam”支付了 800 英镑
38
为了通过
运河。乘客们
穿着他们最好的晚餐
所有人都来到了甲板上
“穿绿色”以纪念
的一天。日落
是一个非常出色的
我们可以看到反射
夕阳西下
下面的水看起来像
两个太阳在
地平线 晚饭后几
的乘客跳舞
甲板上——
周六
3月18日
我们希望尽早开始
今天早上,而是
被蒸笼耽误了
从运河出来
在沙滩上飞快
所以我们等待
她的三个小时。我们有
九点左右体重不足。
39
然后继续
没有任何阻碍。
大约中午我们经过伊斯梅利亚
一个成长的地方
自从运河开通以来
打开。这里有一个
赫迪夫王宫
埃及也是一座建筑
这是为
欧仁妮皇后在哪里
花了一些时间
运河上的工作是在
进步。我们被告知
这是当地
古老的歌珊之地。
八点多一点
晚上我们到达
塞得港 - 几乎所有
乘客上岸——
我们等着确定是否
蒸笼是否正在运行
在早上和学习之前
它可能会叫一艘船
并尽我们所能去酒店。

40
我们首先被带到
海关大楼
我们喋喋不休
不得不离开我们的三个行李箱
然后被带到
“卢浮宫酒店”。什么时候我们
到达那里没有人
会说英语
我们曾经认识的小法国人
我们似乎离开了我们
制作有一些困难
我们自己理解。
然而我们成功了
得到我们想要的并且
变得舒适
晚上。在我们去的路上
我们遇到的酒店说
再次告别巴伦先生
格雷厄姆夫人海鸥小姐和
辛克莱医生和卡特小姐。
安息日。
3月19日
我们用晨光
眺望街道

41
塞得港充满
许多不同的人
民族杂牌集会
穿着几乎每一个品种
服装 - 这个地方
也已完全建成
自开业以来
运河大约八年后。
亨利拜访珀西瓦尔先生
英国领事。他
向奈先生询问了他的
姐姐是他哥哥的妻子——
得知蒸笼
将前往贝鲁特
下午五点
并在犹豫之后得出了结论
这将是正确的
最好接受它,并且做到了
所以下午 5 点离开塞得港
在法国蒸汽船上
“泰格。”蒸笼是
挤满了游客和
一流的住宿全部
占用,但我们发现

42
在许多第二类
尊重高于
普里阿摩斯——
周一
3月20日
今天早上醒来
发现我们刚来
停泊在港口
雅法 - “约帕”。雅法
看起来很像图片
我已经看到了,我
几乎无法意识到
我以前从未见过。
几乎我们所有的乘客
尽快上岸
我们锚定了。我们有一个
小镇的景色很好
从港口和作为
我们希望返回和
当我们从这里启航
离开巴勒斯坦没有
上岸——到处走走
六点钟又在路上了。

43
周二 -
3月21日
今天早上我们发现
我们锚定在

酒店。然后亨利离开了我们
去拜访
杰赛普医生当他
他带来了回来

橄榄山和靠近
他事奉的地方
在地球上结束了他来了
与他的门徒和“当他
祝福他们分开了
他们和一朵云收到
他从他们的视线中进入
天堂”。似乎
它神圣的过去必须永远
橄榄山似乎更接近天堂
比地球上任何其他地方。
我们带来了我们的圣经
我们在这里阅读新的
对场景的描述感兴趣
其中橄榄山是
沉默的见证人
山的东坡
我们看着隐藏的伯大尼
从我们的地面上升
那个家庭的家
耶稣所爱的地方
他经常来休息和
家的舒适和
曾经找到相爱的朋友

准备服侍他的
想要。我们觉得它确实是
宝贵的特权
几个安息日
被很多人崇拜的地方
神圣的协会。
星期一早上我们
早早按计划升起
骑马去伯利恒
中午前返回。派对
曾经的绅士们
停在临终关怀是
也从今天早上开始
他们的旅程
贝鲁特国家和我们
他们同时离开
走出雅法门
他们的马在哪里等着
为他们。我们在路上遇见
成群结队的朝圣者和
离市区不远
携带旗帜的游行队伍

和带有音乐的横幅
乐器和歌唱
同样单调的歌声
我们到处都能听到。
离耶路撒冷不远
我们经过了坟墓
许多很久以前
“雅各把瑞秋埋在
去以法他的路
是伯利恒”-
而不是直接去
我们首先访问的伯利恒
所罗门池三个巨大
供水的水库
从喷泉一点点
距离。水来自
这些水库被运送
通过渡槽到城市
附近是一座废墟
避暑别墅和广泛
花园整个约会
回到那个时代
所罗门——

一个小时左右的车程
把我们带到伯利恒
哪个更繁荣
外表富丽堂皇
比巴勒斯坦的城镇
通常包含一个地方
数千居民
但我很惊讶地得知
他们中间没有
一个犹太人。我们打电话给
米勒牧师的房子
德国传教士
一直住在伯利恒
十七年。他邀请
我们参观他的学校有一个
大量的日间学者
和十五个寄宿生,其中两个
他们是男孩和女孩
贝都因人他聚集
大约三十名成员的教会。
几乎所有的伯利恒人
今天的人是罗马天主教徒。
米勒先生和我们一起去
圣诞教堂
这里和我们在其他地方发现的一样

人群的朝圣者。
礼拜堂是
大约三十六英尺长
和十个宽 - 并且在
东端有一个
大理石板插入
中间的地板
这是一颗银星
被铭文包围
用拉丁文。 “这里是耶稣基督
由圣母玛利亚所生——”
在这颗星上十六银
灯一直在燃烧。
聪明的样子
衣冠楚楚的男人
与质量完全不同
朝圣者跪在
我们走近的人行道
这个地方和接吻后
他一再升起的星星
然后跪在
马槽边几
尺远若原

马槽曾经被占用
指定的地方是
现在被大理石之一取代。
我们在同一个屋檐下
被展示了杰罗姆的坟墓
和它所在的房间
说他学习和写作。
大型建筑相连
与圣诞教堂
被称为大教堂的历史可以追溯到
到 327 年,据说
成为最古老的地方
敬拜于世。
回到米勒先生那里
向我们指出了这个地方
牧羊人在哪里
看守他们的羊群
到了晚上,当天使
主向他们显现
带来“喜讯”
地球上的和平善意
男人”,还有山谷
多年前露丝在哪里

采集到的领域
波阿斯。我们访问伯利恒
必然短于
我们本可以希望但那里
还有很多其他有趣的
参观的地点。差不多了
两个当我们到达城市时
吃过晚饭后我们
重新上马骑
到伯大尼。路过
大马士革门
我们在城市的北边
绕着墙骑到
东部然后沿着山谷
对面的约沙法
布鲁克 Kedron 跟随
橄榄山上的路
毫无疑问,伯大尼
同一条路
救世主经常走路
当他去伯大尼时
和大卫一样的路
当逃离他的恶人时
和忘恩负义的儿子“去了

沿着山上升
橄榄树和他哭泣
上去有他的头
覆盖和所有的人
用他覆盖了每个人
他的头,他们走了
他们上去时哭泣。”
略过
我们来到了橄榄山的山顶
在伯大尼的视线中
在它的东坡上。它不过是
一个小村庄只有几个
可怜的小房子,但它的过去
给它留下了丰富的遗产
神圣的协会 - 和
访客忘记了一切
否则记住这里
救主常常来
那就是家
“玛莎和她的妹妹
和耶稣的拉撒路
爱——”我们被引导到
把门稍微围起来
其中被锁定但

一个女人很快就来了
用钥匙打开它
告诉我们这是那个地方
曾经的房子
玛丽和玛莎。靠近
显然是一栋小楼
最近建造的被指出
作为西门的家。
这个地方被一个
把它关在里面的高墙
从村子的其他地方
是一个安静的小地方
柔软的地面覆盖着
绿草是所有人的地方
在小村子里
最好记住
曾经是家人的家
耶稣所爱的。从
这个地方我们被带到了
离坟墓不远
拉撒路的山洞
我们的导游带领我们进入
用锥形照亮道路。
这似乎是一种自然

洞穴和脚下
通向石阶的
往下是一个小广场
我们进入的房间
不得不弯腰非常低。
好像没有
很可能这是
安放拉撒路的地方
但当然有可能
它可能是。
一群小孩
跟着我们乞求
“baksheesh”似乎与
超过普通的坚持。
渴望拥有我们的马匹或
做一些事情来确保
梦寐以求的奖励。在我们之前
下马没有
给我任何警告
他的意图放下
显然是带着这样的想法
有一个很好的滚动,不管
我的安慰或愿望——
我从
他比

我优雅地想象
幸运的是没有受伤
一点也不。有人告诉我
这是一个把戏
阿拉伯马有。
这匹马是采购的
早上在耶路撒冷
不是我穿的那个
向下通过的方式
国家。清晨
我发现了另一块砖
他的那个是为了赶上
咬在他的牙齿和
牢牢抓住它
有自己的方式不顾一切
废墟——在路上
回到我们停下来的城市
参观先知墓
在山的西坡
橄榄。入口是一个
地面上的小开口
非常小,一开始
我们简直不敢相信这是
真正的入口
已经描述的地方

给我们。但是一旦通过
我们发现自己的入口
在一个凿成的大房间里
与许多人一起走出岩石
画廊延伸到不同的地方
外壁方向
有许多凹槽
用于接收棺材
数据包络分析。没有铭文
任何形式的帮助旅行者
在他关于他们的猜想中
这些古墓的年代——
毫无疑问,他们有时间
过去被占用,但
现在清空所有痕迹
建造它们的生者
和睡在这里的死者
已经被冲走并且
旅行者只能想知道
并推测其中的秘密
埋葬在这里的历史
沉默的墙壁永远不会露出来。
没有人认为他们是
无论他们的名字是什么
表示安息的地方
任何先知。
据说大部分
耶路撒冷周围的土地是
空心的,在每一只手上
是在岩石中凿出的坟墓。
离开坟墓
我们降临的先知
Olivet 的斜坡越过
那时约沙法谷
跟着城墙走
它的南部边界到雅法
西侧的大门
我们到达了一点之后
日落。
周二早上我们
天一亮就升起来了
以便有一个愉快的
早上出门去伯大尼。
我们到达了山顶
橄榄山恰逢其时
看太阳升起
遥远的山脉。风景
在柔软的早晨很美
照亮荒山
犹大的旷野
看起来不那么贫瘠
就像中午被烧焦一样

太阳。似乎不过是一个
通往死者之路
大海和山脉
摩押超越和
我们看到的另一边
到我们的地中海
被告知可以清楚地
在晴朗的日子里看到,但这
早晨对我们来说太朦胧了
看到它-我们记得
约瑟夫斯的描述
所罗门圣殿的美丽
如早晨的阳光所见
当我们看向
耶路撒冷的话升到了我们的
嘴唇,就像他们以前经常做的那样。
“美丽的情况
整个地球的欢乐是山
锡安——”的情况
耶路撒冷不像
我曾经去过的任何其他城市
见过。被...围绕
山和建立在
一座山 城市本身
是 22000 英尺以上

仅海平面
低于 900 英尺
英格兰最高点。
在这里我们可以理解
的力量和美丽
圣经的话。 “作为
群山环绕
耶路撒冷就是主
围绕他的人民从
从今以后甚至永远——
当我们查看
崎岖的山脉
犹大的旷野
我们的想法又回到了
很久以前当大卫
被复仇者追赶
扫罗如此频繁地寻找和
在其中找到了避难所
这个岩石要塞。
离开山顶
Olivet 我们继续我们的
沿着它的东部走

倾斜直到我们
“靠近伯大尼”。我们
没有进入
村子,但坐下来
在山坡上的小时间
在它之上,并认为如何
我们很想
知道从哪里来
基督升天了。
升天教堂
在橄榄山山顶
应该建立在
现场,但这只是一个假设
在我看来并没有
一个可能的。它是完整的
从耶路撒冷和我看
无法让它看起来
就像救主会去的地方
已经选择并根据
到卢克给出的帐户
“他把他们带到了最远的地方
伯大尼”- 坐在这里
朝圣者公司
横幅和旗帜及其

通常的伴奏
音乐通过
村庄的街道。那是个
非常悲伤的景象如此相似
我们经常看到的游行
在异教徒的土地上。我们等了
直到他们过去
告别一瞥
在伯大尼及其
环境——转身离开
并收回我们采取的步骤
通往周围的道路
山南坡
橄榄山和横跨山谷
到达城门a
八点前。
早餐后我们就出去了
有一个探索的指南
下面的大采石场
城市。我们发现
大马士革附近的入口
门。我们的指南提供了
我们都点着蜡烛
光我们跟着他穿过
巨大的地下采石场

这是奇迹之一
城市的。有些作家有
渗透到远处
七百五十英尺
从入口处 - 在一些
我们发现滴水的地方
从岩石和形成
钟乳石。据说
许多人从此
采石场被采购
建造圣殿的石头。
从这里我们去了一些
距离更远的地方参观
“国王的坟墓。”这些

先知墓和
就像他们被砍出来的一样
坚硬的岩石。我们下降了
在一端进入法庭
这是入口——
一种门廊在它上面
雕刻得很精致
这些坟墓都是空的
现在和应该

从来都不是
犹太国王的坟墓
有些人认为他们可能有
属于希律家族。
入口处
坟墓被关闭了
大扁石圆形
像磨石和
安装在凹槽中
坚固的岩石和外观
在这我们明白了
什么意思
把石头滚到门口
坟墓。从这些
我们返回的坟墓
城市和下午
又出去参观了
一些商店
出售橄榄木。它是一个
木材很容易受到影响
精细抛光和许多
制作精美的文章
从中。在其中之一
属于我们犹太人的商店

展示了一个大集合
奇怪的古代遗迹
他收集的。
从一个法院就在
他的商店后面我们有一个
好的池的视图
希西家。我们接下来参观了
一个大型地下蓄水池
走下石阶
计算其中的步骤
我想有六十三个。
这些有很多
地下蓄水池
我们被告知的城市。

4月11日星期三
今天早上我们早早开始
走到池边
我们的西罗亚
已经指出
给我们几次,但有
只能从远处看到。
它位于东侧
约沙法谷的城市
水从一个
下形成的人工盆地
悬崖变成更大的水库
53 英尺长 x 18 英尺宽
和 19 深。石阶
引下水。
像许多其他地方一样
在巴勒斯坦的西罗亚池
只对神圣感兴趣
协会是
密不可分地联系在一起
它的名字——村庄
西罗亚是一个集合
可怜的小建筑

在斜坡上
山谷对面的小山。
在不远处
游泳池里有一棵梧桐树
据说可以标记的树
以赛亚所在的地方
殉道而不是
遥远的恩拉格尔“
间谍之墙——”
回到我们的城市
爬上了陡峭的山坡
并遵循路径
沿着城墙去
圣史蒂芬门 - 近
墙外的这扇门
被指出的地方
第一个烈士斯蒂芬被石头砸死的地方
贝塞斯达池是
许多人应该有
一直在这个地方。那里
仍然是一个大水库
长 300 英尺,深 75 英尺,但
没有水
在其中超过两个

百年和它
现在是一半充满
垃圾。有些人认为
一个更可能的位置
距离北有点远
门外的
墙壁——但像许多其他的一样
只放置某些知识
被一扫而空
过去的岁月——
当天晚些时候,我们
再次访问了一些
城里的橄榄木店
下午去了
到雅法附近的一个地方
门口看模型的
犹太会幕
“根据模式
在山上给摩西”
非常完整
和所有的东西
尽可能地像
原件与

法院包括它是
也许十英尺长
四五宽。
已经快五点了
当我们回来时
然后我们出去了最后一次
参观橄榄山
和客西马尼园
我们下了
Via Dolorosa 出
圣史蒂芬之门越过
小溪 Kedron 然后
路过花园
沿客西马尼
引出的通路
到伯大尼。大约一半
爬上橄榄山
我们坐下来唱歌
一些甜蜜的赞美诗
这似乎带来
天堂如此接近连接
明亮的礼物

[注:似乎缺少一页]
周六早上很重
阵雨阻止了我们
从上街
但在下午的云
清理干净,我们去了
到圣堂
坟墓。这是一个巨大的
结构可追溯到
君士坦丁时代更多
超过一千五百年
以前,据说覆盖
或包含在其范围内
令人难忘的数量惊人
地方。的地方
十字架矗立着坟墓
基督被埋葬在坟墓里
亚当、麦基洗德、约瑟
尼哥底母白块
大理石
宣布的天使
基督的复活石头
在其上的身体
救主被定为

受膏。的一部分
鞭毛柱,若干
的岩石租金
被钉十字架的时间和
许多其他人同样不可能。
我们发现这个地方很拥挤
朝圣者络绎不绝
来自世界各地
整个可怕的场景
使人感到困惑
很高兴记住这一点
几乎没有理由相信
教会是真的
按照它声称的那样建造
髑髅地。许多
朝圣者携带棕榈
分支它是星期六
在棕榈星期日之前,以及
他们挤挤挤挤
彼此最不客气
在他们努力接近
足以亲吻斑点
哪个传统标志着
神圣的——

土耳其大部队
士兵驻扎通过
建筑物以维持秩序。
有某种服务
我们当时被关押
那里还有一个大合唱团
唱着单调的歌
上面可以听到
所有声音的混乱
但在我看来,整体
最接近巴别塔的方法
我见过的。它
是一个非常痛苦的
场景,我很高兴
确实要离开这个地方。
从这里我们找到了我们的
通往圣史蒂芬大门的路
在东边
前往客西马尼的城市
和橄榄山。
穿越山谷
约沙法和路过
越过 Kedron 小溪

我们到达的小桥
橄榄山脚下
现在封闭的地方
如同客西马尼园。
墙上的小门
是一个和尚为我们打开的
我们在里面看到的唯一一个人
宁静的围墙
安静形成令人愉悦的对比
与嘈杂的混乱场面
我们刚刚离开。无论
这真的是
客西马尼园
一千八百年
以前与否,我们知道它
如果不是,必须非常靠近它
那个地方。内
外壳是八颗橄榄带有标记的树木
大龄。
我们在花园里徘徊
直到夕阳提醒
我们被告知

那城门
在日落时关闭
一个例外
尚存的雅法门
夜间开放。
一个守卫被保留
大门。这是
节日的晚上
我们的主人提供的逾越节
尝试并获得许可
让我们从
一些犹太家庭,但
他们自然而然地失败了
宁愿没有
陌生人的存在——
相反,我们喜欢
愉快的聚会
五位美国绅士
谁一直在花费
在临终关怀医院待了几天
并为他们的
穿越国家
离开耶路撒冷向北

星期一和计划
近五人的巡回演出
周。其中四个是
几乎代表神职人员
尽可能多的教派
浸信会长老会,卫理公会。
显然是最融洽的
聚会,我几乎不能
帮助羡慕他们的快乐
他们在商店里
比他们早五周——
我们的安息日
耶路撒冷是光明的
美好的一天。我起来了
正好赶上看太阳
升上橄榄山。我们
参加早间礼拜
在英国教会和
听了很棒的
一个人宣讲的话语
皈依的犹太人
文本。耶稣一直坐着
反对国库——”

这是一篇讲道
在任何地方都令人印象深刻
但在我看来远不止如此
所以在耶路撒冷——
我们所在的教堂
崇拜是建立的
在锡安山和附近
它应该在的地方
救主遇见了他的
最后一个晚上的门徒
他所在的那个晚上
被出卖了。教堂
吃饱了,我
很高兴得知
大多数会众
是犹太人——而且不止
一百个成员
的教会。之前
服务一个小孩
受洗 - 我们很享受
音乐赞美诗之一
唱的是“孩子们
天王”和
关闭一个是一个美丽的

和感人的感叹
目前的悲惨状态
耶路撒冷。可敬的
辛勤劳作的戈巴特主教
在耶路撒冷超过
三十年在场并且
带领祷告并宣读
祝福——
下午我们去了
出“一个安息日的旅程
到橄榄山。”从
它的顶峰是耶路撒冷的景色
是美丽的。橄榄山
高于山上
这座城市建成俯瞰
它和每个名胜古迹
可以清楚地看到——
升天教堂
和其他几座建筑
现在站在山顶
橄榄山 - 经过那里
我们走过去坐下
在朝向的一侧
约旦 -

从这里我们可以看到
越过中间的山脉
犹太旷野的
显然去死海
但在几英里之外
超出它的明确定义
升起摩押山。
我们可以清楚地看到
约旦河谷和
追踪它的路线一段距离
然后看向
耶利哥的位置隐藏
我们靠山之间。
在我们注意到的乔丹之外
似乎是两次传球
穿过山脉
向东,想知道是否
通过他们中的任何一个
以色列人找到了自己的路
下到约旦河和
哪座山峰
我们的眼睛现在停留在
是摩西的那个
被允许查看

应许之地向北
以法莲山
让我们想起了路
我们来自哪里
加利利下撒马利亚
我们想到了玛丽
玛格达莱娜和其他
跟随耶稣的妇女
从加利利长途跋涉
一定是为了他们
我们几乎是
一周制作它。这
我们过去的安息日
在加利利海和
现在在耶路撒冷的两个
救主度过的地方
三者中的大部分
他多年的事工和
我们无疑通过了
在同一条路上
下来
他过去经常出差
与被选中的十二人——
现在我们在

[注:似乎缺少一页]
未来 。和我们一样
正在告别
耶路撒冷及其
围绕着我们的思想
自然地向后转
到它难忘的过去。
并转发给
新耶路撒冷——
离开 Mt Olivet 我们
下来通过
约沙法谷和
爬上了陡峭的山坡
直到我们站在外面
城墙是
应该在 S.E.角落
站在哪里
古庙墙
做过。并且根据
这些墙壁的阴影
我们唱了光荣的事
三个人说
一神的锡安城。

太阳正在下山
和乌云
西聚
但日落着色
清晰地闪过
天空照亮了
东边的云
橄榄山制作
给我们美丽的画面
记住。我们有
没时间在这里逗留
并担心圣
斯蒂芬斯盖特已经
被关闭,我们遵循
城南的城墙
然后在西边
到雅法门
到达那里一点
天黑后 -

我们的最后一个早晨
耶路撒冷 我们已经安排好了
前一天的一切
这样我们就可以开始
早点去
约帕将近四十英里。
我们有鞍马
还有一头骡子和驴子搬运行李
由努比亚人负责
好脾气的样子
伙计。阿特伯里先生
刚从一个
死海之旅
再次加入我们公司
亚伯拉罕来看
我们开始说再见。
早上很黑而且
厚厚的云似乎
预言下雨天,
我们又一次穿过
对面狭窄的街道
城市到雅法门。
已经有一条马路
从耶路撒冷到
现在的乔帕或雅法
哪一方的影响
改变灯光和阴影
当云层飘过他们
是最美丽的,因为我们
靠近我们的拉姆莱
疲倦的骏马加快了它们的步伐
显然认为他们的步骤
靠近一个休息的地方。
城市呈现罚款
外观
隔着疼痛的距离,但
当我们穿得更近时,似乎
更少的邀请,当我们
到达修道院
旅行者习惯于停下来
我们得出结论,我们宁愿
去乔帕而不是花
那里的夜晚。拉姆莱是
古老的Arimathea
有趣的是
撒母耳的出生地和在
晚年约瑟夫的家
亚里马太的。曾经是
一座有十二个城墙的大城
耶路撒冷旁边的城门大小
和重要性,但现在包含
只有5000名居民。只是
在到达这里之前,我们有
在吕大附近经过
以尼亚被彼得医治。
从 Ramleh 到的距离

乔帕,我们俩都走得很慢
我们和我们的坐骑都很累。
在我们经过附近的路上
加沙和阿什杜德的遗址
我们路的南边。我们认识了很久
骆驼的火车有些装载
用石头和许多驴子
大量的优质橙子
哪个雅法不大
比我在别处见过的
傍晚时分,我们经过
城市附近的橘园
空气似乎充满了
花的芬芳。
我们的时候天黑了
到达雅法,我们
已经够累了
充分享受舒适
休息的地方。
星期五 -
我们度过的那个早晨
整理和重新包装
我们留下的行李箱
在贝鲁特被派往
我们。我们太累了不能出去
在街上,有
对小镇兴趣不大。
房子仍然显示
据说有
是[无法辨认的] [无法辨认的]

周六
1876 年 3 月 25 日。
今天早上发现我们和我们的
所有的安排和
一切准备就绪
四我们期待已久的旅行
通过巴勒斯坦几乎
九点钟当我们的马
被带来然后我们说
再见了这里的好朋友
贝鲁特与别离的目光
在周围的几个
日子已经长大了
我们熟悉的安装和转动
我们的脸朝南
“应许之地”我们的译员
谁签约成为我们的
期间的引导和保护
接下来的两周供应我们所有的需求
并看到我们在墙内安全
耶路撒冷回应了
“亚伯拉罕·埃利亚斯·斯拉夫”和不同
大多数龙骑士都穿着
英式服装,一身灰色
磨损有点差。
他的英语知识
我们发现非常有限并且
我们的谈话尝试是

因此相当不满意
尽管正如他通常声称的那样
能够理解这一切
我们对他说我们不能很好
尽量少做
虽然我们理解他并且
他似乎从来没有因为
某种表达他的词
意义。我们度过了愉快的时光
开始的早晨
我们的旅程,并经过
贝鲁特的街道很快
在开放的国家。这
我们的风景很美
是的,我们可以看到不远处
地中海的蓝色海水
在我们的左边是山
范围越来越高
超越所有的白雪皑皑
黎巴嫩的山峰。山脉
梯田且栽培良好
这给了他们更多的肥沃
从山顶看到的样子
比基地和他们的边
点缀着无数村庄——
在城市附近,我们经过了一些美丽的地方
松树林和大部分路途
马路两旁都是树篱
仙人掌常常比我们的头高
而许多品种的野花
在我们的脚下开花。
为了一点点路的伤口

通过耕地和
然后把我们带到海边
剩下的一天我们都骑着马
在海边有时如此接近
沙滩那海浪如他们
冲进我们的马脚。
我们在中午停下来吃午饭
夹竹桃树林,靠近
传统标记为
约拿和鲸鱼的地方
分手的公司。在这里休息后
大约一个小时,我们重新安装
有时会追寻我们的方式
穿越沙滩,有时
沿着石质的山坡。这
我们到达时太阳正在下山
西顿和我们二十岁的长途旅行
siz 英里也没有成就我们
厌倦了欣赏美丽的日落
地中海上空的光,
我们面前的古城和山丘
和远处的山脉。我们找到
我们的帐篷搭在空旷的地方
就在外面的莫兹勒姆公墓附近
城墙。已经有
那里有两个帐篷,我们后来得知被阿特伯里先生占领
来自纽约和英语
绅士 Le Merchant
我们的帐篷还没准备好
对我们来说,坐在外面
在一些营地凳子上等待
亚伯拉罕安排内部
我们有机会的帐篷
看到我们的行李火车
已经出现在我们面前,包括
几头骡子一头驴和
两匹马。亚伯拉罕的追随者和
他的助手有五个
自己的私人服务员“午餐
男孩”哈桑
字符“奥马尔”一个阿拉伯土耳其人
一个安静愉快的家伙。约瑟夫
失败和短暂的厨师
到来是一个永不失败的来源
亚伯拉罕和两个人的烦恼
骡夫或“Mukkars”饰演亚伯拉罕
称他们为“Jarius”,他们总是
似乎想看看哪个
睁大眼睛或嘴巴
和“Abou-habib”一个小老头。
动物和人似乎在竞争
彼此在做一个
噪音和叮当的骡铃
驴的叫声和
里面男人的叫喊声
合唱有时非常有效。
当我们进入营地时,译员
对方“约瑟夫”的
亚伯拉罕的一个朋友解雇了一名
致欢迎辞和会议期间
晚上几条短裤被炒到
通知“所有可能关注的人”
双方当时和那里
向营地提供武器
防御并准备使用它们
如果有必要。
我们被告知有一个聚会扎营
在同一地点只待一周或
之前有两个人在
一些文章的夜晚和
可观的钱。我们曾经
很高兴找到我们的帐篷
比我们预期的更舒服。
它衬有鲜艳的色彩
印花布地毯铺在
地面旅馆床架,舒适
用漂亮的盖子垫一张桌子和
几个营地凳子让它看起来
非常舒适和像家一样。
亚伯拉罕为我们提供了一个美好的
我们完全公正的晚餐-
我们早九点就退休了
马鞍上的几个小时
我们准备好享受和
感谢一夜长眠。

安息日
3月26日
一个美丽的安息日早晨
我起床正好赶上太阳
翻越山峦。
亨利给艾迪医生发了一张便条
他为他带来的
Jessup 医生和大约九点钟
他打电话邀请我们大家
去和他们一起度过一天
我们很高兴的邀请
接受。阿特伯里先生来了
一大早来询问
会不会有服务
在城里亨利让他去
和我们一起参加阿拉伯语服务。
走了一小段路,我们就到了 Eddy 医生那里
城外的房子,靠近
按习俗建造的海滨
这里有一个大的开放式球场和房间
从四面八方打开,
艾迪小姐亲切地接见了我们
欢迎,很快她妈妈就来了
与她的女儿玛丽和一个
妹妹。他们有两个儿子
现在在美国读书其中一个
期待很快加入他们的行列
在西顿的宣教工作。后
几分钟的谈话我们去了
和他们一起参加早间礼拜
在当地的小教堂停下来
在去房间的路上

用于他们的开始
孤儿院一个新的企业他们
现在这个部门有七个女孩。
教堂里的服务是
埃迪医生出席率高
来自文本“我带着和平离开
我给你我的平安。”
四个小孩受洗
他们的父母最近团聚了
与教会。姑娘们从
寄宿学校二十七
人数与他们的
教师。服务返回后
艾迪医生。艾迪夫人坚持
阿特伯里先生还在吃晚饭
并派人询问
Le Merchant 先生加入我们
他做到了。下午,艾迪夫人
遇到了一个大十一的圣经班
寄宿学校的女生。
他们似乎有兴趣听
一点中国。艾迪小姐教过
同时小班
女孩和他们的课后
完了都进来了
客厅里唱了几首赞美诗。
随后亨利与埃迪医生
他的女儿们去了另一个
在教堂和亨利服务

告诉他们一些关于中国的事
和我们在那里的工作。
他们回来后我们一起唱歌
我们都喜欢的一些甜美歌曲
《甜蜜再见》《播种》
“维尔内的安全”等。
房间的窗户在
我们被向西看
朝着落日和何时
它最后的光线在
地中海水域在
暮色渐暗,我们跪下祈祷
并感谢我们的天父
甜蜜安静的安息日。他给了我们。
晚上我们又见面了
寄宿学校的女孩们
自己的教室,听过医生
艾迪在他们的圣经上检查他们
过去一周的课程。我们曾经
很高兴看到这座建筑
刚购买使用
学校的,这似乎
很好地适应了目的 -
差不多九点的时候
我们告别了我们的朋友
并按照我们的指南通过
狭窄肮脏的街道很快
到达外面的地方
我们搭帐篷的城墙。

周一。
3 月 27 日。
我们曾经早起,有我们的
咖啡面包和鸡蛋早餐
我们的帐篷被拆了,每个——
东西准备好稍后移动
七。作为 Messrs、Le-Merchant 和
阿特伯里也走同样的路
我们是他们加入了他们的力量
和 [无法辨认] 所以我们在一起
一个公司,两个龙骑士,九个
男人和二十二匹马骡子
和驴。就在我们开始之后
我们遇到了艾迪医生和玛丽来了
下来说再见。我们两个
龙骑兵做了一个很好的展示
他们的火器。 “约瑟夫”穿着
穿着宽松的土耳其裤子和
短外套,背着长
枪背在身后
剑和一些手枪
卡在他的腰带上。亚伯拉罕有
一把枪和一把手枪
上午的课程结束了
偶然。他们做了
几次尝试射击鸟类
当我们骑行时开始
但他们的火器似乎
非常不可靠,我们得出结论

我们最好不要期望太多
保护他们 - 他们
似乎如此处理它们
不小心我们觉得我们的
主要危险来自一些
他们的作品排放他们的内容
在一个意想不到的时刻
意想不到的方向 - 并坚持
他们不应该携带它们
加载。十点左右我们
经过古代撒勒法遗址
现在只有两三个标记
可怜的小建筑 这里是
曾经的“撒勒法”
到西顿”寡妇之城
提供避难所和家
以利亚多日。
中午我们停了一个小时或
所以在一个旧废墟附近吃午饭
汗,然后继续我们的
沿着海岸的方式
地中海的“海岸
提尔和西顿。”在
下午我们看到了
古代的“情妇”提尔
海洋”现在只保留
其前身的名称和地点
宏伟。这座城市似乎
从海中升起正在建造

在以前的
岛。当亚历山大
围城他修筑堤道
从大陆到它
沙子现在已经填满了
干预空间改变它
进入一个半岛。我们找到
我们靠近海边的帐篷
靠近另一方的那些
已经到达露营地
在我们之前。英语
旗帜飘过他们的帐篷,
Le Merchant 先生发现他们
是一位英国绅士
和他的女儿们
在尼罗河上旅行了一小段时间
以前的时间。许多孩子
从城里出来见我们
并坚定地聚集在我们周围
满足他们的好奇心和安全感
如果可能的话,一些“Vaksheesh”;他们
大多衣衫褴褛,肮脏,
他们中的许多人都非常奇特
头发看起来好像有
褪色,仅部分保留
原来的颜色。习俗
纹身的脸和手臂
毁容很多
妇女和女孩——

几个小时的车程
我们到白色海角“Albrun”
Promontorium”有一条路
在坚硬的石灰岩中
此时上升的岩石
突然从海中形成
旅行的天然屏障
土地。曾经的道路
制作非常陡峭,并且
多岩石的。我们停了几个
最高点的时刻
近三百英尺以上
看起来的海平面
当我们向下看垂直线时
白色石灰岩的一侧
在我们的正下方——
从这里看风景很美
向后看,我们可以看到
轮胎几乎被包围
横跨平原的大海
使北方的山脉和
向东黎巴嫩和黑门。
在我们的陡峭悬崖上
脚,我们看着清澈的深处
地中海延伸的
向西直到眼睛
可以遵循并超越所有
明亮的阳光和
美丽的蓝天.-

我很乐意逗留
在这里更长,但仍然有
在我们之前要走很多英里
将到达我们的尽头
一天的行程就这样告辞了
一眼我们开始信任的下降
给我们脚踏实地的小马
选择最安全的立足点——
再往前走一点我们就停了
让我们在一个安静的午间休息
阴暗的地方和亚伯拉罕
把我们的午餐摊在下面
什么的蔓延分支
他告诉我们是一棵杜松树
中午后不久我们到达
“泰尔梯”。这里一个
道路已被切断
山边如此多岩石和
陡峭以使其适当
“Scala Tyria”的名称。
这形成了之间的界限
腓尼基和应许者
当我们转身时降落在这里
向南,我们的目光停留在
很好地继承了亚舍
美丽肥沃的平原
英亩以长为界
卡梅尔山脉。

我们下午经过
许多美丽的橄榄园
和挥舞着谷物的田野和
傍晚时分,一个很大的橘子
装满最好的树木
橘子。就在到达英亩之前
我们看到了一个长长的渡槽
之前的统治者——扩展
离市区很远。
我们的时候已经很晚了
到达我们的露营地。
帐篷被搭在一个
军营附近的围场
当我们进入我们的
发现它已经被
这么一大群苍蝇
似乎会有
几乎没有我们的空间。
然而当天黑了
他们拿走了上他们的住处
在上部
帐篷让我们不受干扰
剩余部分的占有。
周三
3月29日
今天早上的天空
阴天,似乎在承诺
我们是潮湿的一天。帐篷前

被取下来的水滴
雨开始下,
在雨中骑行的前景
似乎不是很吸引人。
我们拿出了油布防水布
我们提供的
我们自己,但最终得出结论
不要穿上它们,除非它
变得绝对必要。
我们并不后悔离开我们的
军队的露营地
苍蝇共享
我们在它的拥有。但它
我们之前快八点了
在马鞍上,轻松自在
告别阿克。我们的路
整个上午都躺在
海滩,我很享受慢跑
穿过沙滩。我们看到了无数
深蓝色的果冻鱼
后退的海浪留下
沙子,还有几种法术。
乌云笼罩着我们黑暗和
整个上午都在威胁
有时似乎刚刚准备好
倾倒他们的内容
我们,但我们没有逃过一劫
淋浴。有一次我们看到了一个
喷水从海中升起
显然有几英里远。

一路就在我们面前升起
卡梅尔山和我们很快就来了
在小镇的视野中
海法在其基地附近
德国人的殖民地已经定居
谁来到巴勒斯坦
等候基督的降临。
我们已经将近三个小时
在海湾附近
陆路长途,但正如我们
从海法回望阿克
似乎很短的距离
穿过水面。我们通过了
通过海法镇
其中一部分被
德国人提到。超过
他们家的门是印刷的
作为诗篇 15-1 的圣经文本
“住在帐幕里的主
谁将住在你的圣山上。”
出城我们的路
穿过一颗美丽的橄榄
树林。橄榄树非常
漂亮和他们大而粗糙的
打结的树干给他们一个
风景如画的外观——
叶小而窄相似
到柳树。有人告诉我
橄榄树常常活到现在

一千年——
果园里的树是
种植在规则行和
似乎根本不干涉
随着土地的耕作
在他们下面,这通常是
长满了茂盛的庄稼
小麦、大麦或扁豆。
我们在这里下马并带领
我们沿途的马
在橄榄树荫下
我们右边的树往下看
在美丽的耕地平原上
覆盖的一些领域
挥动谷物和其他地方
土壤刚刚翻过
等待播种者及以后
地中海的蓝色海水
而在左边,我们抬头
卡梅尔山崎岖的一面
它的顶峰似乎在哪里
触摸我们头顶的天空。
很快,路径开始上升
沿着陡峭的石头路
险峻山的一侧
我们的马把我们安全地载到
加尔默罗会修士的修道院
海拔1500英尺,
从顶部的视图

远处的山很美
描述我们仍然可以看到
黑门山的雪山
和黎巴嫩很远
北部,横跨阿克雷湾
似乎只有一点点
我们早上离开的城市
在我们脚下美丽的肥沃
平原向下倾斜以满足
地中海的水域现在如此
镇定自若,我们可以
很难想象它永远不可能
被暴风雨的气息搅动。
但在我们的路上,我们经过
几艘船的残骸和
据说这里只是一个
运输非常危险的地方
当有暴风雨从
西北地区。我们吃了午餐
在外面的一个小草坡上
修道院的墙壁和很快
一位僧侣来了之后
邀请我们进来看看
附属于修道院的临终关怀。
女士不得入内
修道院本身,但我们是
允许通过房间
供旅客使用
经常在这里过夜的人。

LE-Merchant 先生可以交谈
和和尚一起用意大利语——
他更糟糕的是一套粗糙的棕色
用绳子系着的布
他的腰和木凉鞋。
我们都把我们的名字写在
游客的书和参加一些
甜糖浆和咖啡
服务员带来了。我们曾经
后来被带进教堂
仅在特殊情况下使用
只有十四个场合
在修道院雇用的僧侣。这
僧人跪在佛像前
圣母玛利亚身着皇室
穿着婴儿救主的长袍
她的手臂 - 前面有一个数字
蜡烛在燃烧。
插入了几片药片
在墙上,有人记录了
事实上,几年前
我认为来自意大利的贵族
把他父亲的心带到
被埋葬在这里的修道院。
我们从教堂下来
一些石阶
显示在“埃利亚斯石窟”中
一个天然洞穴,以利亚

据说在
卡梅尔山。这是一张图片
代表以利亚的青铜
在此之前,芒克跪了下来
又在石地板上。这里
蜡烛也在燃烧,一个
向我们展示了大块平坦的岩石
据说是
以利亚的床。都出现了
很像异教寺庙
看起来确实很悲伤
我很高兴转身离开
从一个地方,如果它是
曾经是先知以利亚的家
现在看来如此亵渎——
我们花了将近两个小时
卡梅尔山,聚集了一些
鲜艳的野花
在修道院外生长
墙壁,然后开始思考
的下降。下陡坡
我们走在山边
我们的马然后什么时候再上
水平地面安装和
骑回橄榄树
穿过海法镇的小树林
沙滩和福特
又是“小溪基顺”然后

转身离开
地中海横扫
我们途中向东的国家
到拿撒勒。有一点我们
涉过深深的沙洲
但很快就把他们抛在了我们身后
开始爬山——
整个下午我们的路
带领我们沿着山坡和
跨越平原和山谷
我们周围的风景似乎在成长
更美丽的每一刻。
空气中弥漫着芬芳
无数野花的气息
在我们的脚下开花,
覆盖了山坡他们的明亮
颜色与美丽的对比
绿草和灰色的岩石
猩红色的海葵明亮的小
阿多尼斯或野鸡的眼睛。甜的
木兰花,纯白雏菊风信子
单身汉的纽扣旋花和
还有很多我后悔的
我不能叫名字
在最富有的地方开花
处处繁华。我们有
被告知我们应该找到
这个国家如此美丽

春天,但远不止于此
所以超出了我的预期。
看起来确实“漂亮
如同耶和华的花园,”和
我不禁为之欢欣鼓舞
在她的凄凉中
上帝仍然喜欢给他的选民穿衣服
穿上美丽的衣服。
傍晚时分,我们过来了
一座小山的眉头,看到了
我们面前的山谷Shefa村-
奥马尔附近有一个美丽的
橄榄树林,这里是我们的
帐篷搭好了。我们曾经
很高兴在这样的地方找到他们
一个愉快的地方和很多
享受安静的可爱
我们的环境。刚刚超越
村庄是一座废弃的城堡
在马路对面一点
离我们一口井的距离
村里的姑娘们
带着他们的水壶来
他们的头和这里
牧羊人带来了他们的牛群
和羊群。一个小时
一两个晚上附近有

不少企业云集
关于井和我们
看着他们我们的想法
自然想起圣经
雷切尔的叙述和
丽贝卡在井边。
下午早些时候我们有
在“加利利迦拿”附近经过
在我们以南不远的地方
路。美丽的清澈
星光晚会关门一天
曾经充满兴趣的
和快乐------
周四
3月30日
今天早上我们几乎离开了
勉强我们美丽的露营
地面。我们没有走
在多石的山坡上很远
我的马滑倒了
并立即倒下。幸运的是
我们都没有受伤
但一会儿又起来了
我重新骑上了他
更加小心的禁令
在未来。我喜欢我的马

非常,虽然他是
而过于倾向于
有他自己的方式
并不总是碰巧是我的。
他很小,而且
漂亮的海湾。我给他取名为“Zhameel”
阿拉伯语为美丽但他的
坚持不懈的决心
一直在后面,并且
在任何情况下几乎
为他赢得了称号
菲尼斯。印象是
他懒惰似乎很普遍
和亚伯拉罕的离别禁令
当他帮我上马鞍时
一般是“打他。打
他很好。”可怜的小“Zhameel”
我怕他的回忆
我总是太亲密
与杆相关联
令人愉快的。我们的早晨骑行
从舍法奥马尔到拿撒勒
非常令人愉快。穿过
一片美丽的国家
作为我们所拥有的
前一天下午旅行
一连串美丽的山谷

肥沃的平原 山坡
覆盖着矮小的生长
橡树、山楂树和其他灌木
和地面无处不在
铺满鲜花的地毯——
时已近中午
我们看到了拿撒勒
俯视它
上面的小山。下路
我们发现的山坡很
陡峭多岩石,但我们的马
小心翼翼地选了他们的路
把我们安全地带到了
镇。我们骑着马穿过
狭窄肮脏的尘土飞扬的街道想知道
今天的拿撒勒有多远
像拿撒勒一样
1800年前。我们现在
在 Zebulon 的遗产中
留下了亚瑟的
我们早上骑车。
在我们停下来的小镇之外
一些橄榄树作为午餐和
等待我们的帐篷升起
那是一个炎热多尘的地方
让我们希望

我们已经等了一些
我们在美丽的树荫下
早上早些时候过去了。
一群美国游客
我们已经在这里扎营了
后来学会了组成
来自纽约的德福里斯特先生。
和他的妻子儿子女儿和
侄女。三个年轻的
党员走了
前往泰伯山游览
一两个小时后,我们
看到他们在
全速。中的一个年轻的
女士们后来告诉我们
她试图抢占先机
的龙骑士,但失败了
虽然她有最好的
马。龙人都是
当然是优秀的骑兵和
常乘风破浪——
我们坐在树下
注意到一个非常奇怪的外观
男人向我们走来。
他穿着肮脏的白裤子
宽松的白色长外套和


一顶红帽子。他的头发和
眉毛虽然很白
他不老。他的一只眼睛
几乎一直关闭
另一个惊恐地眯起眼睛。
他走到 Le Merchant 先生面前
握手说“那怎么
你是? 。”正如他所预料的那样
对话“继续”
Le Merchant先生问他
片刻停顿后“谁是
你呢?” 挺起身子
他强调说“我是
拿撒勒的向导。所有
绅士认识我的向导
拿撒勒的。我可以给你看
约瑟的作坊,犹太教堂
玛丽厨房。我知道所有
拿撒勒”,他似乎有
显示的垄断
拿撒勒的风景,我们告诉他
我们会和他一起去
下午看看有什么
他可以给我们看。在里面
与此同时,我们的帐篷来了
男人们忙着
把它们竖起来——

我们在希腊教堂附近
当我们等待葬礼时
游行队伍经过我们附近,
继续走进教堂。
棺材很粗鲁
被扛在肩上
几个人的希腊牧师
出席并
哀悼小公司
跟着。男人们很快
附带欢迎公告
我们的帐篷已经准备好了
我们很高兴在他们身上找到
中午的避难所
太阳。稍作休息后
当我们开始时
“拿撒勒指南”的方向
看镇上的东西。
就在斜坡脚下
我们的帐篷搭在上面
是“玛丽的井”——靠近一个
小希腊教堂。一些索赔
这就是天使的地方
加百列向玛丽显现。
路过这个地方我们去了
进城,然后

首先被带到犹太教堂
基督“进入。进入
会堂和教导。”
建筑物的一部分看起来很
古老但我想那里
没有它约会的可能性
到目前为止,还没有确定
它甚至在同一个站点上。
接下来我们看到了“教堂
天使报喜——”和这里
有人向我们指出石头
加布里埃尔的窗户
进入玛丽所在的地方
站着等等等等然后爬
我们走了几步石阶
由弱者迎来了什么
我们携带的蜡锥的光
我们可以看到有点
岩石“玛丽斯厨房”中的洞穴。
当然更惨淡
厨房的地方可以
不可想象。这
下一个地方约瑟夫的工作室
现在也被一个
教堂点燃蜡烛燃烧
用图像装饰的墙壁
和图片---

与城镇的小黑门
Nain 和 Endor 附近
基地和约旦河外
基列山。
“拿撒勒的向导”谁
曾坚持陪
我们向我们指出了什么是
现在称为“降水山”。
我们一直徘徊到黄昏
阴影让我们想起了
陡峭的山坡下,我们
必须穿越到我们的帐篷。
途中我们经过一家公司
收集鲜花的女学生
和他们的老师愉快
看起来会说英语的女人
很好,很好地展示了
我们最近的路下来。
这条路有时似乎
虽然它会引导我们
在房子的屋顶上
看起来好像他们
在我们的正下方
建在山坡上
非常陡峭。我们跟着
路径并找到了我们的

但是没有
难以到达帐篷
就在天黑。在前夜
亨利呼吁美国人
派对。德福里斯特先生打过电话
我们出去的时候在我们的帐篷里。
阿特伯里先生进来谈话
在提议的改变
我们的旅行路线。
“亚伯拉罕”给了我们警告
他不愿意
与约瑟夫同行
结果不再
一些不愉快的事情
他们之间发生过
白天——
星期五
3月31日
艰难地离开拿撒勒
今天早上由于
我们之间的不愉快
龙骑兵。亚伯拉罕是
决心把我们带走
通往提比里亚的道路,而我们谁
不参与他们的争吵

所有人都想走同样的路
方法。他终于交出了
点但是用的很差
恩典,这是几个小时
在他恢复正常之前
良好的幽默感。我们发现
道路崎岖不平
我们通过一连串的美丽
矮橡树和
霍桑比比皆是。
不到两个小时我们就到达了
塔博尔山的基地和
开始上升。马路
陡峭而蜿蜒,但
我们的马勇敢地载着我们
大约四分之三
一个小时,我们在
登顶海拔 1400 英尺
平原的。天空是
阴天和一些雨滴
跌倒了,但我们仍然有一个
从非常好的观点
山顶。我们爬了
在广泛的废墟和
老和尚指点我们
传统标记的地方

作为变身的场景
也在远处的山
八福“[无法辨认]山”在哪里
十字军的最后一战
1187 年 7 月 5 日进行了战斗。在我们之前,我们向南看
在埃斯德雷隆平原上空
到小黑门山
基利波向东铺设
约旦河谷和
基列山。我们
刚刚瞥见了黑门山
穿过部分的云
笼罩着山顶和这里
我们又看到了加利利海。
还在远处。我们花费
大约一个小时在 Mt Tabor 和
然后开始下降到达
山脚下一点
中午之前。我们停下来吃午饭
在一个美丽的山谷下
一些矮橡树的树荫。
我们周围的土地是
覆盖着野花雏菊
海葵阿多尼斯百合粉红色和
白色仙客来和许多
其他。一个德国人的聚会
我们遇到的旅行者
早上离开
在塔博尔山上经过我们,而
我们在这里休息。在里面
下午我们旅行了
伟大的短距离
大马士革之间的商队路
和埃及,那条路
大篷车为此旅行
数百年后
他们往返埃及的路
正如亚伯拉罕告诉我们的一样
以实玛利人的道路
约瑟小时候抱过
在埃及奴役中出售。
我们通过了“商
商队“现在在一些堡垒
为保护文物而建的废墟
旅行大篷车近300
几年前。附近有一个
我们看到很棒的市场
马、骡子和
驴。离开
我们骑的商队路
在下午剩下的时间里
穿过没有特别兴趣的平原。
乌云依旧笼罩
我们和偶尔一些滴
下雨但还不够
使我们需要我们的防水材料。
我们经过了几个营地
贝都因人的黑色帐篷
看起来很原始。上
我们经常遇到的方式
他们和他们的骆驼队
或照料他们的羊群和
这些“沙漠之子”是
确实是野蛮的标本
人性的。已经五点了
当我们到达山顶时
最后一座山丘,看着
下到加利利海
在我们面前展开包围
与似乎
将它与世界隔绝
外部。的表面
我们第一次看到的湖很光滑
作为一面镜子和整体
当我们在
山头,看着
下来很漂亮
无法形容和我

忍不住想
救主不能
选择了一个更可爱的地方
为他的事工现场
在地球上 。后来下来
在炎热的海边
当“太阳”的沙滩
带着燃烧的热气升起”
很容易想到如何
疲惫不堪 他必须
经常感觉到
人们挤满了他,但那
第一天晚上的场景似乎
完美的美丽和第一
印象最深,会
逗留时间最长。略低于
我们在海边
是提比利亚小镇
古代留下的一切
城市,现在是唯一的城镇
剩下的一切
在湖岸边发现
加利利一千八百年
前。提比利亚曾经是一个壮丽的
希律的家现在是城
只是一个肮脏可怜的小镇

人口主要是
犹太人和我被告知
那里的犹太人现在期望
梅西亚来的时候会
出现在提比利亚并设置
在采法德一座城市登上他的王位
一天的旅程从西北
提比利亚。这条路带领我们
沿着陡峭的山坡和
过去提比利亚到我们的露营地
地面稍南一点
城市,靠近海边。
亚伯拉罕进入
镇购买规定,但
回来说原来的样子
星期五前夕犹太节
他发现
商店都关门了。
傍晚的风
升起并在很短的时间内
海浪开始滚滚而来
在海滩上休息
相当大的力量,我们去了
睡觉希望风会
没有上升到足以吹倒我们的
帐篷是男人们的伤亡
努力通过收紧来防范
帐篷绳索和加固木桩。

周六
4月1日——
今天早上早餐后不久
我们骑马去
迦百农伯赛大遗址
和乔拉津。我们骑过
提比利亚狭窄的街道
即使在东方
城市因缺乏
清洁度。星期六
那是犹太人的安息日
商店关门了,从
我们的几个犹太教堂
经过我们听到的声音
它里面的崇拜者
好像我们是
亵渎我们过去的那一天
关闭的商店和开放的
犹太教堂和记住
它一定是
一周的第七天
救主认为
祂活着时的安息日
这里是加利利海岸。
从提比里亚我们可以看到
在湖头
标记为的地方

迦百农遗址,但它
需要几个小时的车程
沿着海岸到达它。
路途多远
躺在沙滩上
有时会结束
山坡。国家
看起来很野蛮,没有开垦
夹竹桃和其他灌木丛
一路上都长满了灌木。
一个小时的车程把我们带到
抹大拉曾经是玛丽的家
玛格达莱娜现在是最孤单的
看着可怜的集合
可能是小泥屋
想象中的猥琐肮脏
小孩跑出来了
保持举手
尖叫着 baksheesh 但我们
告诉他们“bukra”阿拉伯语
明白的明天
作为宣布特权
给予。靠近头顶
我们穿过“陆地”的湖
杰尼撒勒”,很快就来了
到最

当局同意考虑
作为迦百农的所在地
曾经站立。什么都没有
现在标记它保存一些
石头和一切只是
一片荒野,几乎没有
生命或文明的迹象。一点
除此之外,我们经过了一个喷泉
新鲜的清水,然后
这条路通向山坡
并通过一个美丽的
部分国家
栽培到伯赛达或
伯赛大曾经的地方
在可怕的灾难之前
对她宣布
和姐妹城市
完全和字面的实现
我们在极度荒凉中看到
今天统治着
曾经认识他们的地方。
超越伯赛大
骑车把我们带到了乔拉津
这里什么都没有,但是
其中一些上有几块石头

可能还可以看到痕迹
雕刻。但对于话
预言的预言
彻底推翻这些城市
这似乎很奇怪
其间的几年可能
已经彻底摧毁
他们存在的每一个痕迹。
迦百农一段时间
救主的家
他的许多伟大作品
被高举到天堂
就特权而言 Bethsaida
詹姆斯和约翰的家
和 Philip Chorazin 有
都被一扫而空,但
加利利湖畔
今天保持不变
就像一千八百
多年前耶稣走过
在海边选择
他的渔民弟子
在它的海岸上。有
在 Chorazin 的网站上很少
召回任何东西,除了

救主的话“祸哉,你
Chorazin”密封了
罪恶之城的命运如此
数百年前。
回头我们回溯
我们的路和路过 Bethsaid
在下面停下来吃午饭
工地附近的树荫
迦百农。坐着的时候
来了两三个阿拉伯人
并在下面坐下
同一棵树和其中之一
拿出他的墨角,
纸张开始覆盖
它带有阿拉伯字符。
我们下午的行程是
相当温暖,我们到达
三点左右露营
找到一个英国人的帐篷
刚刚到来的派对
在我们附近投球。向
傍晚起风了
再次让我们
感到有点焦虑
我们的帐篷看起来

太脆弱的帐幕
反对很多
风暴。夜很黑
下雨了,快到早上了
我们的恐惧得到了实现
焦急的吱吱声被唤醒
三点后我们
一会儿,杆子
在帐篷中央
在两个,让顶部的
帐篷掉进去。
男人进来了
并很快将其支撑起来
这样它就会回答
直到天亮
使他们能够修复它。

[注:空白页]


安息日
4月2日——
天亮了这个
亚伯拉罕早上进去
镇上叫了两个犹太人
一起来的木匠
他们的工具在一两个小时内
修复了损坏的杆子,并且
我们的帐篷能够撑起
再次抬头,它看起来
下垂时相当孤单
健康)状况。同时
其中一个帐篷的杆子
英军扎营
附近有类似的破了
方式和尽快
木匠已经完成修复
我们的龙骑兵来找他们
去做同样的服务
为他们。那句话
“苦难爱公司——”无疑是
在每块土地上都是如此
当然,亚伯拉罕似乎
当他发现时非常高兴
不幸并不奇怪

对自己来说,并带着
显然很高兴指出
我们倒塌的帐篷说
“不是你自己一个人帐篷来
下来。” 早晨的阳光
散去往日的云
白天和黑夜证明
做一个很温暖的人。这
当天早些时候天气晴朗
和湖的景色和
周围的山很
美丽的。我们可以看到山
赫尔蒙非常清楚,这是
许多人认为是
变身山
泰伯山。下午
它变得非常朦胧
渐渐远山
从我们的视野中消失并且
很快我们甚至看不到
对岸的那些
湖。晚上刚刚
当太阳下山时
在拿弗他山后面
我们下楼坐了
有一段时间在海边和
Atterbury 先生和 Le-Merchant 先生。

湖水是
美丽清澈的海滩
覆盖着鹅卵石和
小贝壳。坐着的时候
这里有一艘船经过我们
湖和它的居住者我们
承认德福雷斯特先生和
他的家人,后来才知道
他们是从那里过来的
拿撒勒和安营
在提比利亚的北侧。
我们回到帐篷吃晚饭
然后再次下降到
海边,坐在一些
靠近水边的岩石在唱歌
几首赞美诗。这是一个美丽的
月光傍晚,水
湖水非常平静,
和平——正如我们所记得的那样
这个地方的神圣协会
我们很感激它有
是我们的特权
我们在海岸的安息日
加利利海——

周一
4 月 3 日。离开了我们的露营地
今天早上在海边
七点左右。我们的
导游带领我们上山
通过不同的路径几乎
如此陡峭
我们星期五晚上来了。
在我们的右边,我们离开了
哈丁山 - 传统的地方
说基督传讲
登山宝训和
其中近八百
多年前的十字军
遭受了最后的失败——
哈丁山附近
草坡被指出
我们作为见证的地方
面包的奇迹和
鱼 - 当我们上去的时候
山坡上我们偶尔回头
对这些地方的离别一瞥
被如此多的神圣所崇拜
协会,但早上
非常朦胧,我们可以
不见不散
中间的山丘隐藏起来
us 加利利湖及其
周围环境。我们回溯
我们穿过平原
到我们到达的塔博尔山
中午左右停了下来
我们中午在基地休息
在 karoub 的树荫下
树 - 有高高的带刺的树篱
梨的生长无处不在。
卡鲁布树产生一个
一种长在豆荚里的豆子
这些豆荚就是“外壳”
浪子与哪个
渴望满足他的饥饿感。
有人告诉我,有些
想想圣约翰的蝗虫
吃的真的是这些外壳。
当我们在这里等我们的火车时
骡子追上我们,走了
在他们穿过平原的路上
从我们坐的地方我们可以看到
Esdraelon平原伸展
遥远的南方

美丽如初
明亮温暖的阳光多变
在漂泊的阴影下
云和远处
我们可以追踪绕组
我们要走的路
跟随我们的露营地
在希尼姆。我们在这里休息
将近两个小时然后重新安装
穿过平原向南
沿着小黑门山脚下
经过恩多村和
Nain 到 Shinem 小镇
我们达到了一点
五点后发现
我们的帐篷搭起来但不完全
为我们准备好了。肮脏的人群
儿童和粗犷
贝都因人聚集在我们周围
亚伯拉罕告诉我们
他感到非常害怕
小偷在这里。我们今天的方式
已经通过
Zebulon的继承和
纳弗他的土地

一千八百年前
见证了实现
以赛亚的预言。今晚
我们的思想走得更远
回到那个时候
先知以利沙曾经来过
在这里,在家里找到
Shimamite 女人的
热烈欢迎和慷慨
好客。然后我们
远眺平原
长期到卡梅尔山
疲倦的方式,哀悼
妈妈去的时候
死亡的阴影已经变暗
她的家承载着悲伤
给属神的人的消息。
在另一个锚点,我们可以
看到不远处的站点
古代耶兹鲁尔和我们
在平原上扎营
Esdraelon的“耶斯鲁尔山谷”-
现在看起来很平静
在柔和的夕阳中宁静
光,但在过去的时代
经常是战场
冲突的军队——

周二 -
4月4日——
我们早早就在路上了
今天早上和我们的导游
首先使我们偏离了
穿过的直接道路
广阔的麦田
“哈罗德之泉”或耶兹鲁尔
很久以前基甸带来的地方
他的手下可供选择
他们三百人
在“剑”之夜
耶和华和基甸的”
被压制和分散
米甸人大军安营
在山谷对抗他们
杰兹鲁尔。之水
喷泉非常清澈
展开成一个大
盆地部分被
悬垂的岩石和
在它的背后升起群山
Gilboa 的高度。我们一直是
越过地面
扫罗最后一次战斗的地方
与菲拉斯廷人的战斗——

沮丧和沮丧
他前一天晚上去了
去咨询恩多的女巫
并通过她了解到
他的悲惨命运——
当我眺望平原和
询问它,因为它正在
那一天覆盖着
我以为是非利士人的主人
希望一定已经死去
在以色列人的心中
当他们转身逃离
他们的敌人在陡峭的山坡上
Gilboa的岩石斜坡 -
离我们更远一点
到达古遗址
杰兹鲁尔和骑马
它所在的小山停了下来
片刻
峰会比较它的现在
与它的过去。只有一点
可怜的小楼
现在占据了
这座帝王古城——
亚哈城“谁

邪恶在眼前
主胜过一切
他之前的国王”。
耶洗别住在她邪恶的地方
生死她悲惨的死
拿伯斯被牺牲的地方
对亚哈的核心——和
可怕的处决在哪里
报应的正义被访问
亚哈的七十个儿子——
在完美的安静中
现在统治着这些山丘和
平原似乎很难
意识到他们曾经
一直是沉默的见证人
这样的场景。我们徘徊
欣赏美丽的景色
在我们面前,在我们脚下的“山谷
耶兹鲁尔”埃斯德伦平原
向西延伸至卡梅尔山
和地中海向南
到杰​​宁古老的Engannim
我们向西北望去
在加利利的山上
和向南的那些
撒玛利亚在东边在山谷之外
约旦升起山脉
吉利德的。从耶兹鲁尔
我们的方式引导我们通过
美丽的国家
杰宁 - 一个有两个或两个人的小镇
三千居民
显然建造得很好
比起来繁荣
我们经过的城镇。
这是旧时代的埃格尼姆
坐落在美丽的
南端
Esdraelon平原。一个军人
武力留在这里是为了保护
国家的。这些浩瀚
平原现在只是部分
栽培有
居住在此的居民很少
分散的村庄。我曾是
告诉整个人口
叙利亚不超过一
百万,仅此而已
超过四分之一
土地正在耕种——
牧羊人带着他们的

成群结队
只让他们远离
耕地
未包含在
反正。很容易
了解米甸人如何
曾经想出他们的
羊群和牛群和“姿势
土地”。入口处
小镇在排长队之间
刺梨树篱和
在这里我首先尝到了它的果实
印度无花果合我口味
平淡但不令人不快。
在骑马穿过小镇
哈桑,我们的午餐男孩吃过
不幸打破
土制水罐
“文章太多”之一
提”其中组成
他的马的负荷
携带并登上顶峰
他骑着他的
脚几乎笔直伸出
在任何一方。亚伯拉罕
完全归咎于事故
满足他想要穿出风格的愿望
像绅士一样快速骑行

穿过城市的街道
并严厉地训斥了他
因为到目前为止忘记了他的正确
生活中的驿站。怎么一个
背负着这样的
杂件行李数量
应该想到有抱负
“像绅士一样骑行” -
对我来说是一个奇迹,但我是
经常惊讶地看到哈桑
沿着小路疾驰在
全速,只有一块
用绳子引导他的马
他的胳膊、脚、马鞍包、步枪
水缸都在狂飞
在空中,还有更多
惊讶地看到他的马
并没有失去他的一切
回来但现在来到一个
停止、马、男孩和行李
都在一起,都在
良好的秩序-刚刚超越
我们停下来的小镇
在橄榄树丛中享用午餐
树下繁茂
扁豆作物正在生长——

另一群旅行者
正在度过他们的中午
在一些人的阴影下休息
附近的树木。我们在这里等
两个多小时,以便
给骡子火车
同时经过我们
足够的时间到达
提前露营
我们。我们的下午骑行
三个半小时是
令人愉快的道路
我们穿过蜿蜒的山谷
展开成美丽的
肥沃的部分耕作平原
小树林覆盖的山坡
橄榄树。我们在旅行
通过继承
伊萨赫和“看到了土地
那是愉快的——”
在我们的右边,我们经过了多森
约瑟在哪里
搜索时定向
他的兄弟们,有一段时间
先知的家
以利沙。后来在
过了一个漫长的下午

低地平原称为
“溺水谷”——和
靠近加冕的山丘
萨穆尔要塞附近的一个地方
这是一个据点
过去但现在部分
在废墟中。差不多了
我们到达的晚上
我们的帐篷搭得很低
Jebe附近的沼泽地
靠近一个漂亮的喷泉。
周三
4月5日——
我们离开了露营地
大约这个平时的时间
早上,跟着
从山谷引出的小路
上山坡,经过杰巴
或基比亚。我们的路
发现变得更加陡峭并且
岩石 - 有时沿着
山谷,有时领先
从谁的山上爬上
我们享受美丽的峰会
周围的景色
国家 - 许多山坡

梯田和耕种
但是树很少,而且
的一般方面
国家相当贫瘠。
我们经过几个村庄
九点半到达
特别第一名
对古代撒玛利亚感兴趣
一度成为亚哈的首都
他就是在这里建造的
耶洗别是巴力的圣殿。
我们参观了这里的废墟
施洗约翰教堂
据说他被埋葬的地方
被他悲痛的门徒——
教堂很大
建筑长 153 英尺,
75 宽和可能的日期
回到那个时代
十字军。在撒玛利亚
使徒腓力传道
时间和他在这里创立
教堂。我们之后
参观了两条线的地方
的大柱子仍然存在
站立应该曾经
已经形成了一个
凯旋门可追溯到

当“希律王
伟大的”重建撒玛利亚。
很难意识到什么
撒玛利亚曾经在寻找
现在在它上面“它有
变得荒凉”。
从撒玛利亚我们有一个
比较顺滑
平坦的道路,美丽的风景
动辄。我们的路
通过继承
玛拿西和以法莲。
这个国家似乎更
彻底培养了我们
经过许多橄榄园
无花果和石榴和
山坡是梯田的。
我们遇到的所有人
然而通过这个国家
衣衫褴褛手持枪刀或棍棒
中午我们来了
再次看到电报
从贝鲁特到耶路撒冷的线路
我们没见过的
几天。我们已经到了
古代示剑纳布卢斯
大约中午。我们的帐篷
还没有上来
我们四处寻找酷
我们可能在阴暗的地方
坐下来等他们。
好像没有什么好
附近的树荫和我们
终于翻过一块石头
墙壁上坐了下来
犁过的土地下
橄榄树。一个小时左右后
我们的帐篷准备好了,我们
很高兴在他们身上找到
更好的避暑场所
太阳的。我们的露营
地面就在外面
城市,我们无能为力
以为我们的帐篷
可能在并且可以
离这个地方不远
很久以前亚伯拉罕在哪里
雅各搭起了帐篷
“反对示剑”——我们
就在山脚下
Gerizim 和休息后

一两个小时以上
重新上马骑
上山,我们
可能会欣赏从
据说它的峰会
确实很好——
上山的路
侧面俯瞰城市
美丽的示剑
位于基地和
向上延伸
Gerizim,风景如画
在我们看来
下来。我们找到
这条路确实很陡
似乎
尖尖的岩石
覆盖了这座山
肯定会无处不在
割伤我们的马
脚。当我们向上爬
乌云开始聚集
头顶让我们害怕

他们会隐藏
我们希望的观点
获得这么多 - 和
早在我们到达
山顶雨滴
开始下降。靠近
顶部我们发现了一个大型聚会
撒玛利亚人扎营
谁来保持
基利心山上的逾越节盛宴——
接下来的星期六——
我数了三十个帐篷 许多
他们的住户出来了
看着我们,一脸凝重
看起来可以的老人
说一点英语
尝试进行
与 LE Merchant 先生的对话
听起来很奇怪
他的“是的,真的”回答
俗话说
我们担心会有
雨。他们似乎热情好客
非常倾向于并敦促我们
很多东西要下马来

进了他们的帐篷,但我们做到了
不接受他们的邀请。
从这里开始短暂但非常
陡峭的攀登把我们带到了
山顶。这是
覆盖着广泛的废墟
某些地方的墙壁 九
脚很厚
广泛的基础
建设,但他们
真的好像不是
非常有名。
有些人认为有些时候
过去必有
这里曾经是一座建筑
对应寺庙
耶路撒冷的-作为基利心山
是圣座
撒玛利亚人——一点点
废墟的南边是一个
不规则的大块光滑岩石
塑造一些四十五英尺
直径,这是
撒玛利亚人认为

他们的一个非常神圣的地方
燔祭坛——
他们说这里是哪里
亚伯拉罕来献祭
他的儿子以撒
声称当
以色列人进入
那是应许之地
方舟放在这里
帐幕立起来
而这里的十二
床上的石头
乔丹被带来了。
它是 Mt Gerizim
经历了这么多
几个世纪以来耶路撒冷的对手
其中撒玛利亚人
女人对基督说
我们的父亲在
这座山,但你说
在耶路撒冷是
男人应该去的地方
崇拜。就在一个
狭窄的山谷是埃巴勒山

确切的对应物
Gerizim - 我们看着
下山边和
想起很久以前的时光
当以色列人
聚集在那里聆听
阅读法律
六个部落站在
反对 Mt Gerizim 和
六个部落反对以巴路山
和许多悲伤的
几个世纪以来的变化
来来去去
从那时到现在
带来了骄傲
犹太民族 - 靠近
我们的山脚下
指南向我们指出
约瑟和雅各的坟墓
出色地。这些的位置
地方被认为是好的
认证的不能
说的很多
给导游的旅行者——
我们非常遗憾
我们错过了美景

Gerizim 我们应该
如果我们曾经有过
晴空万里——
山本身看起来
凄凉凄凉
描述。不同于其他山
它似乎没有组成
岩石,而是覆盖
跟他们。我不能
帮助认为它看起来
好像它已经被制作出来了
然后是大量的岩石
石块倾泻而下
它。我们的指南已确定
带我们回到我们的帐篷
另一条路,我们有
打算下山
在另一边访问
Jacob's well but as the rain is
下降,我们得出结论
我们去那里直到下一次
早上走最近的
一路下来。记住
“仁慈的人是仁慈的
献给他的野兽”——我们下了马,
带领我们的马下岩石

路径仔细挑选
我们在锐利的路上
尖石头。什么时候我们
回来我们找到了soem
营地里的热闹
并很快了解到
“示剑人”堕落了
之上我们的龙骑兵和
虐待他们。亚伯拉罕
曾在
被石头扔在头上
他——约瑟夫有
下到城里去
法院
此事正在调查中。
麻烦起源于
之间的一些困难
美国政党的骡夫
附近扎营的游客
和一个示剑人
他曾经和谁
一些交易 吵架
以打击结束的话
可怜的家伙跑到
我们的人寻求帮助

解释了他们的成为
涉及。一大群人
聚集在周围,相当
骚乱随之而来
被外表安静了下来
一些土耳其士兵——
主犯
被逮捕并带走
下到城里——
约瑟夫后来告诉我们
他们兴致勃勃地
打算逮捕他
但他进入了这样一个
可怜的抱怨
他受到的虐待
他遭受的痛苦
他们觉得它会
雪上加霜
逮捕他和他们
让他和他们一起去
而是作为证人
他更愿意这样做。
他说他不是真的
完全受伤,但他滑倒了

他从口袋里掏出钱包
并设法踩到
在他的烟盒上
打破它并拉他的
帽子错了,然后宣布
他所有的钱都有
被他带走
他的烟盒毁了
有几块石头
撞到他的头——因为他
问“这样不是更好吗
比入狱
几天?——”很明显
他认为这更好
计划,他似乎很享受
超乎想像
他在逃避中的精明
法律的把握。
案件已被调查
在下午和
晚上一个土耳其人
官方来了一个
居住在当地的传教士
会说英语的舍根

为粗鲁道歉
他的人民。派对
骡夫是谁
主要演员和受害者
由一个年轻人组成
来自美国和他的两个
我们认识的姐妹
在轮船上从
塞得港到雅法一些
三周前。
傍晚时分先生
LE Merchant进来说
再见,就像他以前一样
访问耶路撒冷他的计划
是去直接形成纳布卢斯
到雅法,从而成功
只有一天的路程。
周四 -
4月5日——
我们今天早上起来寻找
那昨天的云
仍然悬在我们头顶
许诺下雨天。

另外两个政党是
在我们附近安营扎寨
再往上一点
绿色的山
美丽下的草坡
三分之一的树
帐篷漂浮着英语
旗帜。一方离开
之前的露营地
我们,但我们正在路上
七点,注意到
当我们经过我们的
美国朋友是
刚开始取下
他们的帐篷。乐商先生
已经在路上了
到雅法已经开始
近三个小时前。
我们骑着马穿过
陌生老街
这座城市如此古老,以至于它的历史
回溯四千

几年到那时
“亚伯拉罕进入
迦南地进入
Sichem 的地方”。
街道很窄
和建造的房屋
结石。这么小而且
墙壁如此厚实,以至于他们
似乎几乎
从固体中凿出
岩石。 “舍根在
以法莲山”是其中之一
提到的避难城
约书亚。就在外面
我们经过军队的城市
车站和大公司
的士兵在绿地上
附近绿草如茵的银行
从事洗涤他们的
衣服。他们的军装
是不是我觉得风景如画
土耳其裤子和
带帽和腰带的夹克。

他们中的大多数人穿着夹克
和深蓝色的裤子
带有猩红色饰边的布
和猩红色的帽子。一些
穿着白色
用猩红色的腰带和
帽子看起来很漂亮。
他们似乎有
尽管度过了愉快的时光
多云的天空没有
承诺得到
他们的衣服干了——
离我们更远一点
经历了惨痛的
小村庄
Sychar的遗骸。
就在这之外
约瑟夫的坟墓,一个小地方
被高墙围起来
并部分覆盖
带圆顶。有
很少或毫无疑问,这

真的是地方
以色列人
将约瑟埋葬在“示剑”
而他一直在这里
在这么多世纪中休息
不受变化的干扰
过去的岁月
带到了他的土地
和人。只有一个
距离
约瑟的坟墓是雅各的
好在“包裹
雅各布给的理由
给他的儿子约瑟夫”——
我们找到了井
一些困难
周围有石头
掉在原地,并且
它被部分覆盖
我几乎无法意识到
救主曾经
坐在这里“厌倦了他的

旅程”,而他
那时无疑是在旅行
在同一条路上
我们现在正从
犹大到加利利——
井在底部
基利心山的山
其中撒玛利亚人
女人告诉他他们的
父亲曾崇拜过。
应该是在这附近
从自然特征
约书亚的地方
一定是站着的
他在
全体会众的听证会
以色列六个部落站立
对阵 Mt Gerizim
和六个部落反对
埃巴尔山离开示剑
和周围的环境
给它这么多的兴趣

我们继续前行
引领我们的道路
向南穿过
以法莲的产业——
我们头顶的雨云
变得越来越黑
越来越暗,很快
落下的水滴给了我们警告
即将到来的阵雨——
我们在下面寻求庇护
一棵橄榄树的树枝
但等了几个
时刻结束了
家具齐全但很差
保护它会
让我们变得更好
进展——还没有
下着大雨——
我们再走几英里
经过现场附近
示罗的位置
这是如此明确的定义
在圣经中。 “一个地方
位于伯特利的北侧

在东边
上升的高速公路
从伯特利到示剑
在利波拿的南边——”
一个非常有趣的地方
鉴于其过去的历史。
正是在示罗
以色列子民设立
会幕和在哪里
部落聚集起来接受
从约书亚他们的部分
应许之地。
四十年来一直是
以利的家和
撒母耳的时代
在示罗,孩子们
以色列的聚集地
年复一年地保持
主的筵席。
我们没有参观它
半小时的车程
从直接的道路,但

有记录的人
那“一切都剩下
今天的示罗是
它以前所在的地方
站着和一把
散落的废墟——”
通过后不久
[无法辨认] 一个小镇
更硬 淋浴 被迫
我们再次寻求庇护
在一些橄榄树下
我们在这里等着
吃午饭,让
骡车经过我们。
我们原本打算在
早上度过
晚上在伯特利,但
不利的状态
天气让我们决定
最好是
找个露营地
更近。对于近两个

我们等了几个小时
为帐篷投保的树木
那时为我们准备好
重新安装骑
还有一个半小时
到我们去的地方
找到了我们的帐篷。他们
被投入了一个美丽的
放置一个狂野的峡谷
无论是高高的岩石山丘
侧——云歇
在他们的峰会和
薄雾从他们身上蔓延
双方。一切都是
又湿又冷
风断断续续地吹
阵风仿佛下定决心
利用一些
意想不到的时刻和
炸毁我们的帐篷。
但寒冷和雨水
不能完全阻止

我们从享受
我们的自然美景
环境,我可以
不由后悔
我们看不到他们
在更有利的
情况。阿特伯里先生
晚上过来了
我们都同意我们
将开始作为早期
尽量隔天早上。
亚伯拉罕告诉我们他认为
如果我们的帐篷被炸毁
在晚上它会
我们最好的安装计划
我们的马马上
从耶路撒冷出发
所以免去他们的麻烦
把它们重新放上去。
然而幸运的是这样
不是我们的命运,朝向
晚上雨停了,
在我们上床睡觉之前
楼梯闪闪发光。

星期五
4月6日——
经过一个寒冷的夜晚,我们起身
今天早上找到每个
东西相当潮湿和
天空看起来很黑
威胁我们聚集
我们的东西在一起
把它们放在一起
遗憾地认为它
是最后一次并且
骑马是
半点在路上
六。阿特伯里先生和
约瑟夫已经开始了
正如我们后来了解到的
到达耶路撒冷
十点钟。云
很快开始脱离
我们偶尔喜欢
一缕阳光——
所经过的国家

我们似乎在旅行
更荒芜,那里
耕作的痕迹更少
比北方更远。我们
已经进入遗产
本杰明和一程
两个半小时
把我们带到伯特利——
当我们穿过
可怜小人的街道
现在承载着
名称并占据
古代伯特利遗址
我们回忆了很多
过去的场景
让它仍然是一个地方
如此感兴趣和
然后看它的现在
想起了预言
两个以上的阿摩司
千年前——
“伯特利将一事无成”

我们从伯特利抓到
耶路撒冷一瞥
十二英里远和
在锯子上再远一点
它非常明显地通过
山上的一个开口。
离伯特利不远
艾的位置是
指出但隐藏
距离我们很远
山一样的
很久很久以前
亚伯拉罕什么时候来的
他“从那里移走
进入山上
伯特利以东和投球
他的帐篷上有伯特利
西和海
东,然后他建造
献给耶和华的祭坛。”

再往前我们经过
“扫罗的基比亚”和
在某个山坡上
拉玛的距离
给我们。当我们走近
耶路撒冷我们超越了人群
朝圣者在路上
去圣城度过
复活节周在其范围内-
他们形成了一个杂牌
公司聚集
从各个方面到这个中心
他们中的一些人拥有的土地
一直在路上
一个多月。
其中一些已安装
在驴子上,但到目前为止
两个男人的大部分
妇女们在走路
穷人很多
他们当时花费
在这个朝圣中很少

到圣城希望
从而获得救赎。
有人告诉我很多
穷人会存钱
多年来每一种方式几年才能得到足够的钱
使他们能够来
终于到了耶路撒冷
朝圣
到所有神圣的地方
妄想如此
赎罪
寿命。在此期间
几天我们
在耶路撒冷度过
我们经常悲伤
他们无知的见证人
迷信和迷信
蠢事。它是在
当我们到达十二点时
耶路撒冷。我不是

第一次失望
城市景观。这是
坐落在美丽的建筑
在山上和
包围
靠山
正如我们在
距离一座美丽的城市。
它的位置和外观
在很多方面相当
不同于任何其他城市
我见过的。
近距离观察揭示了
贫穷和不幸
这使得现在
如此悲伤的合同
过去,但在这里
在别处“距离借
结界——”我们
走近城市
从北方和
经过大马士革附近
门我们的导游带领我们

在西边
一边,我们进入
穿过雅法门——
走上了我们的路
穿过狭窄的肮脏
朝圣者熙熙攘攘的街道
去德国临终关怀
我们希望留在的地方
在耶路撒冷时。
我已经采取了严重的
前一天晚上很冷
而且很累
很高兴在
舒适的房间
他们为我们提供了——
休息一两个小时后
我们获得了一份指导
我们到哭泣的地方
犹太人星期五下午
他们见面的时间
哀悼荒凉
耶路撒冷。他们相遇在

外面的空地
一堵墙,下面的石头
应该曾经形成
古代耶路撒冷的一部分。
它是最近的点
他们是穆斯林允许的
统治者接近现场
现在他们古老的神殿
被奥马尔清真寺占领
超过七百
多年以来,犹太人聚集在一起
时不时地哀悼
为他们过去的荣耀而哭泣
在他们现在的荒凉中。
我们发现四十个五十个集合了
他们中的大多数人站得很近
一些坐在墙边
在石板路上,老
泪流满面的男人
女人的脸颊
和孩子们亲吻
石头一遍又一遍。
一些阅读形式的书籍
希伯来语和其他看起来
加入合唱。它是
一个非常感人的景象

是否悲痛
表达的都是真实的
看起来或不在那里
他们的外表就够了
他们的周围环境和
想到他们现在的状况
让场景看起来
说不出的悲伤。许多
我们在那里看到的人无疑
远道而来
我们被告知有些是波兰人
犹太人现在在耶路撒冷
约四千名犹太人
生活在贫穷和悲惨中
我没有拜访犹太人
季度,但据说是
最悲惨的部分
城市位于南部
锡安山和
摩利亚山。他们有
我的十四个犹太教堂
被告知与
地板下沉
地面水平以指示
目前的低状态

犹太民族。它是
真的很伤心
处于陌生人地位的犹太人
和他们自己的外星人
尽管有她的城市
低庄园他们仍然如此热爱
热情地。而在
耶路撒冷 我不断地
想起救主的
字。 “哦!耶路撒冷耶路撒冷
我多久会聚集一次
你的孩子们在一起
一只母鸡收集她的鸡
在她的翅膀下和你们
不会。” 可悲的话是真实的
犹太人作为一个民族今天
就像十八岁以上一样
一百年前他们
拒绝了保护的提议
爱。
