Notes Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath
printed description: "(Acts, vii:16.)--Set in the midst of olive groves, gardens and orchards, and refreshed and made productive by as many as 80 springs, Shechem enjoys advantages of a natural character hardly equaled by any other town in Palestine. It was to this place that Abram came when he first entered Canaan. For we are told in Genesis. xii: 6, that he came 'unto the place of Sichem.' Thus Shechem is the oldest town in Palestine of which we have any authentic history, dating back in the distant past as far as 4,000 years. Here Jacob bought land and took up his abode
here Joseph came in search of his brethren on the occasion when they sold him to the Ishmaelites at Dothan
and here the law was given to Israel. There are about 15,000 inhabitants here today, and it is a prosperous town for the East." See 5185BAI/LVi103CAJS (Voyager # 358940)
