⁂ Gethsemane. “In the afternoon we went down to Gethsemane, found the wall broken down with the rain, & were climbing over, when a man appeared, who had been sent to guard the place. He had a very wild look altogether & a great club, which he flung about. However Gertrude argued with him & a little “baksheesh” soon got us through.”
Tour includes Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, Nazareth, Damascus, Beirut and Baalbeck. from the text, the writer seems to be an English Missionary teacher, who came to Baalback to teach at the school.
