Excerpt from The Spell of the Holy Land

One made the reader imagine that the Holy Land was intersected by splendidly paved high ways, bordered by hedges, olive trees or stately palms; and claimed that, while the days might be hot and disagreeable, the nights were beau tiful sapphire hours during which the tourist sat on some balcony, over the marble pillars of which jasmine vines were trailing.

The next writer declared that not even the roads of internal China are in a more neglected state than those of Palestine, and dwelt upon the departed glory of architectural beauties, the chalky whiteness of the parched and barren acres where once the date palm flourished and the weary pilgrim found rest in the shade of the mimosa tree.
